Or by appointment.
A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is a trained community volunteer appointed by a judge to speak up for the best interests of an abused, neglected or abandoned child involved in a juvenile court proceeding. Bringing urgency to a child's needs, both in and out of the courtroom, CASA volunteers advocate for safety, permanence and well-being for children through independent recommendations.
If you are concerned for the well being of children and have a continuing commitment to advocate for a child until a safe and permanent home is obtained — you could be an effective CASA volunteer.
If you are objective and nonjudgmental and are able to interact with people of various educational, economic and ethnic backgrounds — you could be an effective CASA volunteer.
