CASA Denton County
CASA Denton County

Lori Cope, director of the Court-Appointed Special Advocates of Hunt County (CASA), says the number of cases on CASA's agenda has increased from 145 on April 1 to 186 as of May 6.  CASA volunteers represent children in foster care during court proceedings.  She says increasing pressure on Child Protective Services (CPS) is adding to CASA's  caselist.  And so, she says CASA is in urgent need of more volunteers.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
