“I trusted my CASA volunteer. She was the only person whose face I recognized after every move.”
What it means to be a CASA Volunteer
By becoming a Court Appointed Special Advocate, or CASA volunteer, you can help provide a voice for children who have been abused or neglected. CASA volunteers are individuals from all walks of life who speak up for a child’s best interests in court. You are not a foster parent, you are a voice making a real difference at a critical turning point in the child’s life.
CASA volunteers get to know the child and gather information from everyone involved in his or her daily life, including family members, foster parents, teachers, daycare providers, doctors, lawyers, social workers and other relevant persons. CASA volunteers use the information gathered to report to the judge, advocating for the child’s needs while in the foster care system. As a volunteer, you commit to represent a child’s best interests while they are in care.
