CASA fights child abuse


April is Child Abuse Awareness Month, and fighting for the rights of abused and neglected children in Cheyenne County is Court Appointed Special Advocates.

“When a child has been abused or neglected, a judge appoints through the court a special volunteer advocate to be the voice of the child throughout their time, when they’re involved in the juvenile system,” Rose Bowcut, Cheyenne County CASA director, said. “What we do as a program is recruit and screen and train volunteers to become ready to be the child’s advocate.”

In Cheyenne County, Bowcut said that, more than child abuse, they see cases of child neglect.
