Make A Difference In A Child’s Life: CASA Program
Training New Volunteers


You can make a difference in a child’s life by becoming a Volunteer Advocate for an abused or neglected child through Lassen Family Services CASA Program.

Lassen Family Services CASA Program is looking for community members to advocate for children in the dependency court system and will offer training for new volunteers. An orientation is scheduled for March 1st, from 5:30 to 7:00p.m., at the Lassen Family Services office at 1306 Riverside Drive in Susanville.

CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocates, are community volunteers that are trained to become an advocate, or voice, for a child who has been removed from their home because of abuse or neglect. CASAs are appointed by the family court judge to look after the best interests of the child or children to whom they are appointed.

CASAs meet with the child and others involved with the child’s care and make impartial recommendations to the Court regarding services and placement as well as voicing the needs and wishes of the child to the Court.

CASAs are required to pass a thorough background check and attend an initial 32-hours of training before being sworn in by the Lassen County Family Court judge. They commit to a minimum of 8-hours per month on their case.

For additional eligibility information and to register for the orientation, please contact Lassen Family Services CASA program staff at 530-257-4599.

Cold Weather in Lassen County
– Crop Prospects
– A Late Spring Predicted
– Demand for Cattle

February 13th, 1882

The Susanville correspondent of the Sacramento Record-Union declares that the residents of Lassen county during the past Winter will, in the future, have a point from which to date events, and this will be the Winter of 1881 and 1882, and no doubt will be called “the cold winter,” as it has thus far laid in the shade the experience of the oldest inhabitant for extreme and long continued cold weather.

The cold commenced about the first of the year, and with a few exceptional days, has been continued to the present time, with little prospects of abatement for some time to come.

During the month of January and a portion of the month of February the thermometer ranged in the morning from two to twenty degrees above zero.

This continued cold, with no snow on he ground, has caused it to freeze to a considerable depth, and has also dried up and frozen the springs of water, so that there is much suffering from that cause among the cattle in the hills, and his no doubt will help to swell the numbers that must perish from cold and lack of feed.

The suffering and death of poor cattle each hard winter is a sad comment on the feelings of stock men, when we take into consideration the fact that there is plenty of hay for sale in the county.

Until the first of the present month there was but little snow in the valley, and even now the ground is not covered in the lower portions of the valley, and in and around Susanville there is scarcely six inches, although since the first of February we have had numerous storms, that have piled the snow on the hills to a great depth.

At Hayden Hill, after the last storm, the snow was between four and five feet deep, and two miles above Susanville, on the Oroville road, it was two, and in places over four feet deep.
