PA Court Appointed Special Advocates (PA CASA) 

The PA CASA Association, together with national and local CASA programs, supports and promotes court appointed volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children so they can thrive in safe, permanent homes.

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer is a trained citizen who is appointed by a judge to speak up for abused and neglected children in court.

The CASA concept is based on the commitment that every child has the right to a safe, permanent home. In court jurisdictions that have adopted the program, the juvenile or family court judge turns to a well-trained specially trained pool of CASA volunteers each time a case involving a child is received.

Community Event: 2015 Annual Restore to Freedom Gala & Fundraiser

Tuesday, February 24 @ 5:00 pm7:30 pm

You are invited to attend Oasis of Hope’s 2015 Restore to Freedom Gala on Tuesday, February 24, 2015 at the Genetti Hotel in Williamsport.

Oasis of Hope is a ministry dedicated to restoration and healing in the lives of victims of sex trafficking in America. Working with minor-aged survivors, Oasis of Hope offers opportunity for survivors to rebuild their lives through faith-based safe homes. Oasis of Hope contains Pennsylvania’s first and only safe house for minor victims. We believe that human trafficking is slavery in the 21st century. Thus, the goal of this dinner is to raise awareness of the issue of sex trafficking in our own country, state and city while providing solutions to the issue and inspiring people to action.

The event will include a cash bar cocktail hour  at 5PM with a delicious dinner served  by the Genetti Hotel at 6PM. We will also have a classy music performance, a silent auction and a short but meaningful presentation on Oasis of Hope and what we do to help rescue minor victims of sex trafficking in the United States, in Pennsylvania and in Williamsport.

Tickets are $25 prior to the event and $30 at the door. For pre-registration, please go to http://restoretofreedomgala.eventbrite.com.
