Volunteer to be a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA)


When children are removed from their families because of abuse and neglect, they become “dependents” of the court and enter into a 12 to 18 month court process. The children are often living in foster care as the court tries to determine whether or not it is in the child’s best interest to be reunited with their family. These kids desperately need a committed, caring adult to become familiar with their lives and advocate for what that child needs and wants. This committed and caring adult is a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer. These volunteers meet regularly with the child or children, review all important information about the child, maintain contact with the important people in the child’s life, advocate for the child in the system and write reports for the Dependency Court judge about what is best for the child’s future.
