Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) volunteers are trained, dedicated, ordinary citizens with extraordinary hearts. As child advocates, they develop a consistent one-to-one relationship with their child. CASA's go on outings, spend quality time with the child, get to know them personally, and listen to what the child has to say. This commitment enables our advocates to interact with all professionals involved in the child’s case and make recommendations directly to the court, ensuring the child’s best interests are heard. Unlike social workers, therapists, and attorneys who juggle large caseloads, CASA volunteers work with one child at a time and often become the most important person in the child’s life.
To become a Court Appointed Special Advocate you must be at least 21 years old, dedicate 10-15 hours a month, and fulfill a minimum of a 2 year commitment to a youth in the foster care system. There are no specific education requirements and all potential volunteers must successfully complete a background check. More information regarding the role, responsibilities, and requirements of a Court Appointed Special Advocate will be provided when you take the first step and attend our online Information Session.
