Are you looking for ways you can help a child? Become a CASA Volunteer.
CASA volunteers are trained members of the community who advocate for the rights of abused and neglected children in family court. A volunteer follows a child’s case as it moves through the family court system. The volunteer researches the case, learning everything they can about the child’s special situation. The CASA volunteer then makes recommendations to the judge on what’s best for the child’s future.
To become a volunteer you must: exhibit a desire to help abused and neglected children in our community, be able to work independently and as part of a team, have a flexible schedule that allows for monthly visits to the child(ren) you are assigned to, and have the ability to attend court appearances during working hours.
