Volunteer Your time to Change a Child’s Life
CASA volunteers act as dedicated advocates for children who are involved in dependency, neglect and abuse cases in the Family Court System. They are ordinary people who are caring, honest and committed to doing what is best for a child.
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.
What Do CASA Volunteers Do?
CASA Volunteers listen first. Then they act.
Volunteers get to know the child by talking with everyone in that child’s life: parents and relatives, foster parents, teachers, medical professionals, attorneys, social workers and others. They use the 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?
They are ordinary people who are caring, honest and committed to doing what is best for a child. They come from all walks of life, with a variety of professional, education and ethnic backgrounds.
You must pass a background check, participate in a 30-hour pre-service training course and agree to stay with a case until it is closed (a year and a half on average).
