CASA of Jefferson County trains and supports community volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children. CASA volunteers ensure that the child's needs are being met and advocate for the child in court, all so that they may have a safe and permanent home. In Jefferson County, there are so many kids that need a caring CASA volunteer like you!
CASA volunteers complete an online application, interview, background check, and pre-service training. After being sworn-in by a judge, CASA volunteers are appointed to a child or sibling group to spend an average of 5-10 hours a month advocating for that child. They will spend time with the child while simultaneously gathering information about their physical, emotional, social, and educational well-being, and make recommendations to the court on how to best support the child in these areas.
A successful CASA volunteer is stable, open-minded, empathetic, and collaborative. No legal or youth/social service experience required - training is provided.
