Someone Waiting To Meet You

When you advocate for children who are in the foster care system due to allegations of abuse and neglect, you give them a voice -- a voice in their recovery and in their future. You help ensure that they get the medical, emotional, and educational support they need. And you give them hope.

CASA Volunteers come from all walks of life, but they share a compassion and a commitment to improving young lives. If you are interested in one of the most challenging and rewarding of Volunteer opportunities, we will train you to become a Court Appointed Special Advocate, also known as a CASA Volunteer.

To learn more, register for an Information Session. To see the current schedule, go pcasa.org and click on the red Volunteer button. Scroll down to the blue bar that reads: How do I become a CASA?

Join us. Because when we build strong children, we build a strong community.
