Volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates are everyday people, trained by CASA and then appointed by judges to advocate for the safety of children who have been abused or neglected.
CASA volunteers devote 2-4 hours a week getting to know the child and gathering information from everyone involved in the child's case. Volunteers are fully supported by a staff supervisor and are part of a team that works in the best interest of the child. Advocates stay with each case until the child is placed in a safe, permanent home.
