BECOME AN ADVOCATE

CASA volunteer advocates are ordinary men and women from all walks of life, education levels, and ethnic backgrounds who volunteer to serve as an advocate to a child or sibling group. A CASA volunteer advocate is a trained volunteer who speaks for children who are brought before the court. Volunteer advocates are committed and they can make a difference in the life of one child.

Social workers and attorneys are generally assigned to work with many children at a time. The CASA volunteer, on the other hand, is usually involved with only one child at a time, and therefore has considerable time to devote to the child. Time and attention translates into more complete information being provided to the court.

Children with a CASA volunteer are substantially less likely to spend time in long-term foster care (more than 3 years in care).
