A Child Needs YOU

Amarillo CASA is looking for volunteer advocates! CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate and we are a nationwide organization. We are the voice of children who have been abused and neglected-We speak for the voiceless, the broken, the hurting.

A CASA volunteer visits the children in their foster home or relative’s home, advocates for their needs, and ensures they are never overlooked by an overburdened foster care system. A CASA volunteer is often the most stable person in a foster child's life. A CASA can be a friend, mentor and supporter to a child in need. The children that we serve are YOUR children. They are from your county, your town.
