Here is how you can make a difference
There are many opportunities for people to get involved with what we do as an organization depending on what fits you best.
CASA Volunteers routinely visit children in their placement to get to know the child. They meet with parents, family and other team members to identify supportive people in the child’s life that CASA can work with to promote safety and well-being for the child during their time in foster care.
CASA Volunteers advocate for the best interest of the child. They help maintain a sense of urgency to all children’s cases and recognize that permanency, both legal and relational, is essential to well-being. No matter what, CASA Volunteers will keep in contact with the support network until the case closes so that everyone continues to put the child’s best interests first. They make informed recommendations for the child’s physical and emotional well-being to the judge.
CASA Volunteers go through training to learn how to advocate for the best interest of children and support their families before being assigned to a case by a judge. CASA Volunteer Coordinators are available to assist CASA Volunteers with any questions or concerns they have about the case.
