CASA could not operate without its network of caring, committed volunteers, and we are so grateful for those who join us in being a voice for a child. CASA Volunteers form special bonds with the children they advocate for, often being the only constant in a child’s life amidst the ever-changing world of foster care.
CASA volunteers are a highly trained bunch… With 30 hours of in-house training and 10 hours of court observation, they are well-prepared to advocate for the best interest of children in foster care. Additionally, each volunteer is assigned a staff Advocacy Coordinator as a supervisor that is available for any guidance and assistance the volunteer may need. Volunteers meet with their assigned child(ren) at least once a month and attend court with their Advocacy Coordinator when the case is being reviewed.
CASA Volunteers are an essential piece to ensuring children have the best possible outcomes-- kids assigned a CASA are half as likely to re-enter the foster care system-- and we are proud of the work our volunteers do each and every day!
