Court Appointed Special Advocates of Rock County is presenting Pinwheels for Prevention from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on April 1 at the Lower Courthouse Park, Roth Pavilion. This is a community gathering to learn how you can make a difference in the life of a child.

My family volunteered as a foster family for three and a half years in Texas. We know the importance of the work CASA does in supporting children in foster care. There is a desperate need for foster families in Rock County and volunteers for CASA. CASA volunteers are trained to assist children involved in the judicial system. There are more than 100 children waiting for a CASA volunteer in Rock County. Please consider becoming a foster parent or a CASA volunteer.
