CASA

Court Appointed Special Advocates trains and mobilizes community volunteers to advocate and make a difference for abused and neglected children in foster care. They stand up for them. Speak up for them. Champion without compromise for what’s in their best interest.

Become a CASA. The Voice for a Child.

Men and Women Volunteers Needed.

I am for the child who has attended eight schools in four years. Because he is in foster care. Because his birth mother, debilitated by mental illness, neglected him. I am for him. The child who almost died. Who now sits, surrounded by strangers, in the back of yet another class. Failing. Because he is without glasses and nearly blind. I am for that child. So I am there for that child. To listen to him.

To stand up for him. To speak for him. To champion without compromise for what’s in his best interest. Because if I am there for him, I know he will be half as likely to languish in foster care, and that much more likely to find a safe, permanent home. That is the child I am for. I am a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer.

NVCSS CASA mobilizes community volunteers to advocate and make a difference for abused and neglected children in foster care.

We invite you to join us in that mission – Become a CASA…The Voice for a Child.

Q&A

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!
