Volunteer CASA

CASA volunteers visit with the children, gather information from everyone who touches their lives, advocates for their best interests, and puts all of this information into a court report, so that the judge can make informed decisions about the child’s future. This typically requires about 15 hours per month of volunteer time, and we ask CASAs to stay on a child's case until it is finished–an average of 18 months. So, this is not your typical volunteer gig! All CASAs must complete a 40-hour training over a period of 5-6 weeks.
