The Southern VA Child Advocacy Center’s mission states “every child has the right to a safe, permanent home; a loving and supportive environment.” It is a mission the Center’s Executive Director Joyce Moran, has been living for 28 years. The Southern Virginia Advocacy Center is dedicated to promoting the well-being of children through treatment, advocacy, prevention, and education. The staff do that by working with the entire family when possible as well as teachers and counselors.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is one of the main programs the Center offers and it is one of the ones most in need of volunteers. CASA volunteers are caring adults in the community who receive training to represent the best interest of a child. The judge appoints a child or sibling group to each volunteer, who then gets to know the child/children and become a constant in that child’s life during the tumultuous months following identification of abuse and/or neglect. Learn more about how you can help on this edition of Sisterhood of the Second Act.
