Earlier this year, Macon County CASA announced it would be expanding into DeWitt County and now the agency has announced it has an office location in Clinton.
On the WHOW Morning Show Monday, Executive Director Julia Livingston told Regional Radio News the child abuse agency will be opening an office location at the Clinton Presbyterian Church.
For Livingston, she believes in being invested in the community they are serving and indicates the way they are operating in DeWitt County mirrors how they operate in Macon County.
The CASA program has been seeking out a caseworker for DeWitt County. Livingston says they are continuing efforts to find that person and once they are hired, they will be in the DeWitt County office roughly three days per week.
The Macon County CASA program is set to swear in three additional volunteers soon and they have their training schedule set for 2021. We'll have more on that soon at Regional Radio News.
The Court Appointed Special Advocates aim to provide court-appointed volunteers to advocate for the abused, neglected, and/or dependent children who are involved in the Macon County juvenile court system. Get more information by visiting maconcountycasa.org.
