Become a CASA Volunteer

CASAVolunteer_Child-300x205 We are always looking for more volunteers to assist us in caring for the abused and neglected children in the Brush Country Area.

The Volunteers gather information and evaluate the needs of the child, and represent the sole interest of the child.

You can help abused and neglected children find safe and permanent homes where they can thrive and succeed in life. As a CASA Volunteer, your efforts will show these children that you care.

Learn how you can become a CASA Volunteer by learning the requirements necessary to fulfill this important and much needed role.

Getting Started
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) train volunteers from all walks of life, ages, and ethnic groups to act as a voice in court for abused and neglected children.

With the constant support, guidance, and supervision of the professional staff of the Brush Country CASA program, volunteers serve as the court’s eyes and ears. Volunteers help the judges decide whether a child should stay with the parents, be placed with relatives, or be free for permanent adoption.

CASA volunteers are there when a child needs someone the most. In a system overburdened by increasing caseloads, they make perhaps the single greatest difference to the child affected by abuse or neglect.

Mandatory Requirements

  • Be at least 21 years of age
  • Clear criminal record and CPS check
  • Complete FREE 32-hour pre-service training
  • 2 hour Police Ride-a-long
  • 2 hour Courtroom Observation
  • One year commitment to the assigned case
