Change a child's story. There's a child in foster care waiting for a volunteer like you.
Children who have experienced abuse or neglect face a frightening, profound unknown. Courtrooms. Foster care. New schools. No child should face these alone. Trained and supported CASA volunteers advocate in court on behalf of these children. They stay with each child until the case is closed and the child is in a safe, permanent home.
CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate and is a volunteer commitment unlike any other. CASA volunteers are trained, dedicated adults who advocate for a child’s best interests in juvenile court. The information gathered by the volunteer is submitted to the court. These recommendations and concerns help to better inform the the Judge as he or she makes decisions on the case. CASA volunteers are guided by their advocate supervisors who provide coaching and oversight throughout the case.
