Make A Difference
Become A CASA Volunteer
There are children in our community that need help, and you can be that aid. In recent years social worker caseloads have grown, community services such as mental health and tutoring programs have shrunk, and the number of Child Protective Services filings have increased.
We look for qualities rather than credentials. We just ask that you are:
- Committed to helping children
- Open to Personal Growth
- Seeking a Challenging Way to Make an Impact
- Culturally Competent
- Skilled in Interpersonal Relationships
- Willing to Maintain Objectivity
- Creative Problem Solvers
- Able to Pass a Background Check
- Free of Conflicts of Interest
Lend Your Voice
Court-appointed special advocates (CASA) make a life-changing difference for children who have experienced abuse or neglect. Each volunteer is appointed by a judge to advocate for a child’s best interest in court. Our volunteers help judges develop a fuller picture of each child’s life. Their advocacy enables judges to make the most well-informed decision for each child.
You can be there to identify the needs of children in foster care and help make sure their needs are met in a system where they can often be overlooked.
