CASA

CASA of El Paso trains and supports volunteers from the community to advocate for abused and neglected children who need representation in the family court system, striving to provide them a safe, permanent home.

CASA of El Paso is looking for members of the community to spend 15-20 hours per month advocating for the best interest of the child or children going through the family court system. CASA of El Paso provides a 30 hour training to give volunteers the skills needed to become an effective advocate. The only thing we require is to be 21 years old and pass a background check.

The first step in becoming a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) after submitting your application is to set up a pre -screening interview as well as be processed for finger printing and background checks. Once these are completed, you will need to complete one of our training sessions (30 Hours).

There is a monthly time commitment of about 15-20 hours. Every 3-6 months there will be a court hearing for your case and attendance is necessary. You will have plenty of notice so that you are able to make arrangements to attend.

Please check out our website for more information and our volunteer application at www . casaofelpaso .org

Be the difference in a child's life. Advocate for them!

Mission Statement

CASA (Court Appointed specail Advocates), a non-profit organization, trains and supports volunteers from the community to advocate for abused and neglected children who need representation in the family court system, striving to provide them a safe and permanent home.

Description

  • Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. Too many of these children spend years moving from one temporary home to another without a family to call their own. As adults, they are more likely than other children to face homelessness, unemployment, and even prison.

  • That's where CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) steps in. As trained advocates, CASA of El Paso volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for abused and neglected children in court. The result is the children are placed into safe, loving homes where they can thrive.
  • Our CASA program is located in El Paso and we serve abused and neglected children in the 65th District Court. We currently are serving 386 children with 150 volunteers and nine staff members.
