Would you recommend Fairfax CASA?
I've been a CASA for 9+ years and in that time have advocated for 15+ children. Volunteering as a CASA is unlike any other endeavor. I get to be the eyes and ears of the Juvenile Court judge and provide an unbiased perspective on myriad facets of the life of a child or children in the justice system due to abuse or neglect. In addition to visiting each child at least twice monthly to see first hand how they are faring, I glean information from teachers, therapists, doctors, extended family members and anyone else who impacts the child's life. With the help of CASA staff, I use this information to create a comprehensive report which the judge receives prior to any hearing, allowing them as much data as possible to assist in making their ruling. You will never regret becoming a CASA.
I have a lifelong commitment to serving the children in my community . After 14 years of volunteerism , I saw an article for CASA Volunteers. After attending an information session , I knew Fairfax CASA was the organization for me . 2.5 years later , I am extremely content with the professionalism , commitment and leadership of the organization . The Staff at Fairfax CASA is by far the best in class , We need you !
This is the most rewarding volunteer activity that I have ever participated in. I can't think of a better cause - the children in our community. Fairfax CASA is one of the best run organizations out there and the folks there help you every step along the way to ensure your success in advocting for your child(ren). Apply and start helping the children in your community - they need you!!
