Who can be a CASA volunteer? CASA volunteers come from all walks of life. They are ordinary citizens from the community who want to make a difference in the life of an abused and neglected child.
What are the requirements? CASA volunteers must be 21 years of age, pass background clearances, complete an application, attend orientation, interview and train.
How much time does it take? The amount of time will vary, but on an average CASA volunteers spend 10 to 20 hours per month with a one-year commitment or until the child achieves permanency.
What is the role of the CASA volunteer? Researching and gathering information; monitoring and advocating for progress on the case plan; submitting written reports to the court; and advocating for the child in court and in meetings.
Why become a CASA volunteer? Being a CASA volunteer is rewarding and meaningful. It’s a great way to “give back” to your community and make a life-long difference for very vulnerable children!
