Brown Bag In-Service Training - Kinship Care

There will be a Brown Bag at noon on October 25th at CASA. Our lovely Reana Gonzales will be speaking on the topic of "Kinship/Guardianship".

It will cover how to help and guide families who are raising their family's or friend's children, due to incarceration, CYFD involvement, mental illness or a parent's inability to care for their children at that time. She will also be guiding us on how to get the proper paper work that is needed for these cases. Most of all she will tell us how to provide support for the new caretakers who have taken on a huge responsibility.

We will also be spending about 10 minutes talking about a really awesome opportunity for volunteers. We upgraded our database which gave us access to a program called CASAConnect. It will allow you to access files and case information and new documents we receive (drug screens, psych evals, etc.) from your home computer! How cool is that! So come prepared for a new experience! It's going to be awesome.
