Each year in Howard County Maryland, children are abused and neglected or abandoned by their families. These children are removed from their homes and placed in foster care or institutions. That's where Voices for Children CASA volunteers come in. Our CASA volunteers work to ensure that all children have a safe and permanent home.
Virtual Training will begin January 11, 2021 and run for 7 consecutive Monday evenings. Training focuses on the dynamics of child abuse and neglect, an understanding of the court process and familiarity with community resources. After completion of training and background checks, volunteers are assigned a child through the court system.
If you are interested in joining the September class, please complete our application at https://voicesforchildren.org/volunteer/.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
