Taylor Speaks to Rotarians Feb. 6

Rotarian Bob Holeman introduced Rotarian and local CASA Volunteer Coordinator Jodi Taylor as guest speaker at the club’s Feb. 6 meeting.

Winn Parish is a loving, caring, giving community, Jodi Taylor suggested to Winnfield Rotarians at their February 6 lunch. However, we have a larger problem with child neglect and abuse than we realize or care to admit.

Mrs. Taylor is the CASA Coordinator for the local office of Children’s Advocacy Network (CAN). She explained that the organization’s mission is to help heal and champion abused and neglected children throughout Central Louisiana. The agency currently consist of three programs, which are The Children’s Advocacy Center, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA).

The CASA volunteer acts as the eyes and ears of the court, making independent, objective recommendations regarding the child’s best interest with the goal of each child being placed in a safe, permanent home.
