Become a CASA Volunteer!
BECOME A CASA VOLUNTEER
Nobody longs for a safe and loving family more than a child in foster care. As a court-appointed special advocate (CASA) volunteer, you are empowered by the courts to help make this dream a reality. You will not only bring positive change to the lives of these vulnerable children, but also their children and generations to come. And in doing so, you will enrich your life as well.
For more information or to find a program in another area, visit the National CASA Association website.
What Do CASA Volunteers Do?
CASA volunteers listen first, then they act. They get to know the child by talking with everyone in that child's life: parents & relatives, foster parents, teachers, medical professionals, attorneys, social workers, and others. They use information they gather to inform judges and others of what the child needs and what will be the best permanent home for them.
Who Can Be a Volunteer?
You don't have to be a lawyer or social worker to be a volunteer. We welcome people from all walks of life. If you have a passion for children and a few hours to volunteer, we would love to discuss volunteering with you.
Volunteers must pass a background check, successfully complete a 30-hour pre-service training, and commit to one year of service (although some cases may last over a year and the child(ren) will benefit from CASA remaining on their case until permanency is achieved.)
