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
