Consider being a CASA

A CASA is a Court Appointed Special Advocate, a screened, trained, and supported volunteer who stands by a child in foster care. Working with the child’s family, social worker, other professionals, and the court, a CASA listens, learns, and advocates for what is best for the child. A CASA is an abused and neglected child’s champion and friend. Volunteers should have an enjoyment of children, patience, humility, a willingness to learn, strong oral and written communication skills and basic computer literacy. CASAs spend 10 to 15 hours a month for the duration of the child’s court case, usually between 12 to 18 months. For upcoming training dates, please visit
