You do not have to be a lawyer or social worker to volunteer as a Court Appointed Special Advocate. CASA volunteers are everyday people, trained by CASA and then appointed by judges to advocate for the safety of children who have been removed from their homes because of abuse or neglect.
CASA is offering a special daytime training beginning on Sept 30. Rather than the typical evening training of two nights a week for five weeks, this training will be held from 9 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for roughly two weeks, Monday through Thursday (Sept 30 – Oct 15)
On August 13, 2019, the Hon. Ariadne Symons swore in 18 community members as Court Appointed Special Advocates for children in foster care. This was upon their completion of the CASA 35-hour training program.
If you have 2-4 hours a week to be there for a child in foster care, you CAN make a difference.
This year marks the ten year anniversary of the Casa for CASA Capital Campaign. Ten years ago, a dedicated group of staff, Board and community members launched the Casa for CASA Capital Campaign to raise funds to purchase the beautiful CASA home in Watsonville.
