Wat is a CASA Volunteer

Nobody longs for a loving, safe, and secure home more than a child in foster care. As a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer, the courts empower you to make that dream a reality. Not only will you make a difference in the lives of these vulnerable children, but you will also make a difference in the lives of their children and future generations, and enrich your life along the way.

The Volunteer

CASA Volunteers are trained, committed adults who represent a child’s best interests in court. CASA volunteers get to know a child on their case by meeting with them face-to-face every month. In addition to meeting with the child’s parents and family members, CASA volunteers also speak with other community members such as foster parents, school teachers, medical experts, lawyers, social workers and others. The information collected by CASA volunteers is used to directly communicate with the judge to advocate for the needs and interests of the child.

If you volunteer for CASA, you’ll get a volunteer experience that’s unlike any other. By law, a CASA volunteer is considered a court officer and has full access to all confidential court records related to your child/children.

The CASA volunteer provides stability for a child as he or she moves through a crowded foster care system, and can help ensure a child or family gets the support they need.

"There is nothing to compare to the feeling of knowing you've helped to make
a child's life safer and healthier. The look of recognition in their eyes
and the smile on their face make it all worth it!"
