Marion Witte Appointed as Ventura County Special Advocate

CASA

On November 3, 2014, Marion Witte of Ventura, California was inducted as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for the County of Ventura by Judge Bruce A. Young.  CASA is a unique non profit organization which recruits, screens and trains community volunteers to become the voices of children who find themselves in court through no fault of their own.

Ventura County CASA has existed since 1985, when a group of concerned judges, attorneys and community members felt that objective, caring support for these children was necessary during court proceedings and during out of home placement. The CASA advocate, as an officer of the court, is the eyes and ears of the court, reporting the child’s progress and needs to the judge and the attorneys.

  2. Marion: I am so very proud of you and your achievements. Your CASA appointment is so perfect for you. I am a huge supporter of this organization because innocent children do need a strong voice when brought in to the court system. So often selfish parents use these kids as pawns to hurt each other or “win” whether it benefits the child. You go Girl, my talented cousin!
    Love, Denise
