Want to make a difference in the life of a child? Become a CASA!
6 people are interested
The CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) Program for Bullitt County is a nonprofit organization that recruits, trains and supports community volunteers to advocate for children that are in the court system. These children are victims of parental/caregiver abuse or neglect and in the court system due to no fault of their own. As a CASA, you are their voice that may otherwise go unheard!
A CASA meets with the child, their families, and all professional parties in order to gain information that may be helpful to the Judge in making an informed decision.
A CASA volunteer must pass a screening process that includes a written application with references, several background checks and an entrance interview. Once that is complete and satisfactory, a volunteer will go through 30 hours of pre-service training to prepare them in advocating for a child(ren).
No experience necessary, just a passion to help children!
CASA truly makes a difference in the lives of children and their families!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
