Community volunteers are needed to serve one of the most vulnerable populations, abused and neglected children. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) become one stable person who will ensure a childメs needs are at the forefront when the world around them keeps changing. Be the support a child needs.

CASAs advocate for abused and neglected children in the court system. Volunteers will build relationships with their assigned child(ren), speak to all those involved in the childメs life, and provide that information to the Court for the best interest of the child. One must be at least 21 years of age and pass background checks.

The amount of time needed may vary for each scenario, but can typically be within 4-10 hours a month with a minimum of a year commitment. One person can make all the difference in the life of a child.
