Description

Are you a retired teacher? Did you work in pediatrics? Do you have a background in law, social work, or child welfare? If you are searching for a volunteer opportunity that utilizes the skill set you’ve developed over the years as a working professional, then becoming a CASA is right for you. We are looking for advocates who have knowledge of the school system, the foster care system, the legal system, the medical system or the behavioral health system. As a Court Appointed Special Advocate you can put that information to work advocating for a child in foster care.

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is an everyday citizen appointed by a judge to advocate for the safety and well-being of children who have been removed from their homes. No prior experience is necessary. We provide all the training you’ll need, along with a team to support you on your case. Your role will be to gather information from reports, social workers, doctors, family members and other professionals in the child's life. With the information you collect, you’ll represent the child’s best interest in court. A child with a CASA is more likely to receive targeted services and spend less time in out of home care.
