CASA
Become a CASA. Change a child's life.

A CASA is a Court Appointed Special Advocate, a screened, trained, and supported community volunteer who stands by a child in foster care. Working with the child, the child's family, social worker, other professionals, and the court, a CASA listens, learns, and advocates for what is best for that child. A CASA is an abused and neglected child's champion and friend. CASAs generally spend 10-15 hours a month for the duration of the child's court case, usually 18-24 months. After the initial training, time spent is generally flexible. Fall 2019 training runs from mid-September to mid-October. Contact melinda@caofnc.org for screening and application information.
