About

The Office of Guardian ad Litem and CASA is looking for more volunteers. CASA is the only volunteer organization that empowers everyday citizens as officers of the court. Being a CASA volunteer does not require any special education or background. We are simply looking for people who care about children and have common sense. As a volunteer, you will be thoroughly trained and well supported by professional staff to help you through each case. A Guardian ad Litem is an attorney that represents the best interest of children who are involved Juvenile Court because they were abused, neglected or are dependent through no fault of their own.

The Court Appointed Advocates (CASA) are community members who volunteer their time to be a second set of eyes and ears for these children--to make sure their needs are being met while in foster care. The attorneys' have high case loads in our county. On difficult cases, they sometimes need extra help. They ask support staff for a CASA to help them with their case. After training, our volunteers average about 5-10 hours a month working on their case. We really value our advocates and the difference they make in the life of a child!
