You don't have to be a lawyer or social worker to be help a child trapped in the child welfare system. You simply need a sincere desire to make a difference and a few extra hours each month. We provide the required training and are always there to support you. Because we can't be too careful, all CASA volunteer must complete a thorough background check. Children in foster care need you. A CASA volunteer said it best, "You start out to change a child's life and find you've also changed your own."
