What it means to be a CASA volunteer
CASA volunteers are screened and highly trained and then appointed by judges to represent and advocate for a child’s best interests in the child protection system. CASA volunteers are each assigned to help one child or set of siblings at a time, so they can focus on giving that child or sibling group the individualized advocacy and attention they need.

"If giving up a couple hours of my time one evening gives me better insight into making a decision that affects the future of these kids, then there’s no hesitation on my part. Am I tired? Of course! But that’s nothing compared to what the kids are feeling. Every minute I spend talking to foster families, interviewing family members, meeting teachers, going through medical records, therapy notes, and talking to the kids is worth it so that I can be an effective voice in the court room and ensure their best interest is considered. Why am I a CASA? Because every child deserves a voice!"
