In 2010 two local men joined the team of CASA Volunteers serving Brooke and Hancock abused and neglected children. Robert Campbell and Dale Moore both Weirton residents took their oath with Judge Martin Gaughan. A Child’s Place CASA, Ltd.’s mission is to develop volunteers who will stand up for abused and neglected children in court, helping to expedite their placement into safe, permanent, nurturing homes. A Child’s Place CASA, Ltd. is serving 55 children today. CASA Volunteers  review records, research information and talk to everyone involved in a child’s life and then present their recommendation to the court as to what they feel is in the best interest of the child. When a child has a Court Appointed Special Advocate to speak for them; time in dependent care is reduced and delinquency is less likely.
