CASA of Philadelphia remains operational during the COVID -19 Pandemic.
While schools remain closed in the commonwealth "until further notice" and the Family Court of Philadelphia remains closed through 4/6/20; CASA staff are working remotely and available by email and can participate in meetings by phone on web-meeting platforms. We will be checking office phones daily, as well. We will share resources and provide updates on our social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter). If you have questions please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org at any time in the next two weeks.
Our April CASA/EDM Volunteer training will go forward, with the use of Zoom, and we will have a group of newly trained volunteers ready to go, when we are able to return to the office.
Please follow all health department recommendations to keep yourself and your loved ones safe and help to slow down the spread of this virus.

Please check in on each other - while we can't be close physically - that doesn't mean we can't be there for each other through phone and video-chat formats.
As this is a rapidly changing situation, we will work to keep you updated as things change.
