Northwest Louisiana (KMSS) — Volunteers for Youth Justice will hold its 11th Annual "Light of Hope" Child Abuse Awareness Event on the steps of our area Courthouses on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at 5:30 pm.
“Light of Hope” is a national movement to raise awareness of abused and neglected children. Caddo, Bossier, Bienville and Webster parish Courthouses will participate in the event.
CASA recruits and trains community volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children placed in foster care. In 2012, CASA’s staff and volunteers provided services to more than 480 children and their families in six parishes throughout northwest Louisiana, helping abused and neglected children find safe, permanent homes.
