About

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (or CASA) is a trained community volunteer, who has the opportunity to broadly influence the life of a foster child by advocating across many important life issues, including permanent placement, health care, education, and enrichment activities. Many more children can thrive with the intensive intervention of a CASA volunteer, and this is how you can help.

The first step toward becoming a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is attending an information session. Join us for an hour to learn how you can make a much needed difference in the life of a foster child. No specific education background is necessary, as we offer a comprehensive training course for all potential advocates before they are paired with children.

For more information, or to RSVP for this or a different information session, please visit: http://casala.org/volunteer/. We look forward to sharing more information about the work of CASAs at the information session!
