Wilson County CASA, Incorporated in 1987, provides trained volunteers who advocate in court for the stability and healthy development of abused or neglected children. The funds requested in the application will support the salary and benefits for the Volunteer Coordinator. The Volunteer Coordinator is employed 25 hours per week performing duties related to recruiting and training new volunteer advocates; scheduling and assessing volunteer in-service; and overall volunteer wellbeing and satisfaction. 204 of 214 (95%) of children served will not have a change of advocate, thus ensuring continuity in the oversight of their care, needs and healthy development. Wilson County CASA will retain 60 out of 76 (80%) active volunteers. CASA will recruit, train and supervise an additional 16 new volunteers during this grant period.
