Become a CASA Volunteer

What does it mean to become a CASA Volunteer?

Becoming an advocate is an investment of time, energy, and heart. But as many advocates have said of the children they worked with, “It wasn’t about what I gave them, it was what they showed me.”
 
CASA volunteers are trained community volunteers appointed by a judge to advocate for abused and neglected children. As children enter the foster care system, an advocate is assigned to monitor their case as it proceeds through the welfare and judicial system. Advocates act as the eyes and ears of the court, making independent, objective recommendations regarding the child’s best interest, with the goal that each child be placed in a safe and permanent home. 
 

Qualifications:

A CASA Volunteer must:
  • Be 21 years of age or older.
  • Have reliable transportation.
  • Successfully pass screening and background check requirements.
  • Successfully complete 33 hours of classroom training provided by Children's Advocacy Network.
  • Be able to make a 12-18 month minimum commitment to a case. (An average of 4-5 hours per month)
  • Be able to keep information confidential and work within established program guidelines.
