Maine Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA)
CASA is part of the Maine Judicial Branch. CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate. CASAs are everday people who volunteer to act as a Guardian ad litem (GAL) for Maine children whose parents are involved with the child protection system. CASA volunteers are appointed by the Judge to be the voice of the child and to advise the court of what is in their best interest. To apply you do not need any special degree or background.
The Maine CASA Program recruits, trains and supervises the CASA volunteers. We provide a free four -day training and then staff attorneys provide support and advice to volunteers 24/7. If you want to speak up for a Maine child go to our website at www.casaofmaine.org and download our application or submit it directly online. Once your application is complete we will interview you and then you can be invited to our four day training. We hold trainings evey three to four months.
