Father and Son Relationship strong

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is a trained volunteer appointed by a judicial officer to provide advocacy for a child who is under the jurisdiction of the Court due to abuse or neglect. The CASA serves as the “eyes and ears” of the judge for children in foster care.

Working with Children –
a Life-Altering Experience


Become a CASA Volunteer

Volunteers spend time with children, monitor needed services, and provide child-focused recommendations to the Court based on the best interest of the children they serve. The CASA advocate offers support, guidance, and friendship in a consistent, caring and non-judgmental relationship. New volunteers are given comprehensive training to prepare them for the types of issues and situations that might arise during their work with their assigned child. We are always looking for more volunteers so that we can serve a greater number of deserving children. Volunteering as a CASA offers the chance to make a tremendous difference in these children’s lives.
