We extend our deepest appreciation to the newest classes of Court Appointed Special Advocate, Supervised Exchange and Parenting Time facilitators, and Life Long Links specialists in El Paso County, who were sworn in as officers of the court by 4th Judicial District Chief Judge William Bain on June 12.
These dedicated citizens will soon begin the important work of advocating for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the courtroom and the community.
As described in the poem I am a Voice, to a child silenced by injustice, these volunteers will be their voice. To a child with whom the world has broken faith, they will be someone to believe in.
