Court Appointed Special Advocates is accepting volunteers to help with their mission. In our recent meeting, we discussed creating a bill of rights for Foster Children and we are planning a Youth Court Night. These programs advocate for abused and neglected children in Autauga County. Autauga County has a huge need for a domestic violence shelter and a transitional program for children transitioning from foster care. Big Brother and Big Sister programs would be very beneficial for Autauga County as a protective factor for children.
