With volunteer advocates, children who have had only rejection and disappointment from adults learn to trust and hope and love. A CASA volunteer makes a profound and positive difference for abused children.

Research studies have shown that the introduction of just one caring adult can change that child’s life forever.

C.A.S.A. (Court Appointed Special Advocate)

When the judge appoints a CASA volunteer to a child’s case, the CASA volunteer becomes responsible for developing a consistent, emotionally supportive relationship with the CASA child, gathering information from all appropriate sources, and making the most suitable recommendations to the judge about what is in the child’s best interest.

Who can be a CASA volunteer?

CASA volunteers are professional level volunteers who are ordinary people doing extraordinary things. They come from all walks of life with a variety of professional, educational and ethnic backgrounds. Most work full time, some are retired, but they all care about kids and want to make a difference. No special skills are required – only the desire and commitment to help children who have been abused or neglected. CASA volunteers must be 21 years old and be willing to make a minimum commitment of two years in order to ensure stability for the children we serve.

How much time is required?

A CASA volunteer generally sees a child on an average of 10 to 15 hours per month to fulfill their volunteer responsibilities. Approximately every six months, volunteers submit reports and attend court hearings regarding the child.
