I AM FOR THE CHILD!! I AM A CASA VOLUNTEER!!

Each year in Clark County, Nevada, over 3500 children are abused, neglected or abandoned by their families. When these children are removed from their homes, they can remain adrift in foster care for years.

That's where the CASA comes in. CASAs are Court Appointed Special Advocates who are trained community volunteers. They are appointed by a judge to speak up for abused and neglected children.

CASA volunteers are men and women who want to help their community's children. As appointed officers of the court, they work for children in foster and alternative care. CASA volunteers come from all walks of life. They have a variety of professional, educational and ethnic backgrounds.

No special experience is required. Volunteers are selected on the basis of their objectivity, competence and commitment to children. It takes approximately 10-20 hours a month to be a CASA volunteer. Volunteers are always needed to do this challenging, but very gratifying work!!!
