Experience what it feels like to make a powerful difference in the life of a child.
You can help a child in a way that works with your schedule, your budget & your heart.
Community Volunteers Help Children Find Safety in the midst of high-risk, high-conflict custody disputes.
• There is no other service available for these children; CASA fills a gap in service for atrisk children
• Volunteers like you come from a wide range of personal and professional backgrounds
• Cases include concerns of domestic violence, addiction, mental illness and other safety issues
• We serve local children 0-17 years old in King County from lower-income families
• Children are not in foster care; they have no social worker monitoring their safety
• Volunteers receive all necessary training as well as multi-level support at each step of the volunteer experience and a sense of community through social events and seminars.
• Volunteer advocates require 21 hours of initial training and an average of 60 hours over 6-9 months conducting an investigation and writing reports. Initial training is available four times per year.
