The Volunteer Role

What does a CASA volunteer do?

Experience the satisfaction of helping children in need. CASA volunteers are ordinary people who do extraordinary things for our community’s most vulnerable children. By dedicating 2-4 hours per week, every CASA volunteer makes a difference in the life of a child. CASA volunteers offer a consistent and caring adult presence in the lives of the children they serve.

CASA has been best described as the “eyes and ears” of the court. From helping siblings find permanent homes together, to helping a child access needed services, to uncovering information that helps reunite a loving family, volunteer advocates make an incredible difference in the lives of abused and neglected children.


Who can be a CASA volunteer?

CASA volunteers must be at least 21 years old and pass a background check. Once you apply, interview, and are accepted into the program, you will receive all necessary training in courtroom procedures, social services, the juvenile justice system and the special needs of abused and neglected children. This 30-40 hour training is required before being assigned a case. Next training dates HERE.

Right now, there is a child in your community who needs your help! You can be the difference; become a CASA volunteer! No special background or education is required to become a CASA volunteer. We encourage people from all cultures and professions, and of all ethnic and educational backgrounds.
