Become a volunteer and Change a Child's Story! The mission of CASA of Autauga County is to ensure every abused, neglected, and abandoned child in Autauga County has a competent, caring volunteer appointed by the court to speak for the child's best interest. Some of our children are in foster care and others are with relatives. Our volunteers receive 30 hours of training before starting their important work. They spend time with the child each month, getting to know them and becoming a trusted positive adult influence. They also interact with others in the child's life so they are able to make recommendations to the court about services the child or their family may need in order for the child to be in a place they can thrive and grow for the rest of their life. (Training is currently a hybrid of virtual and in-person training. All COVID-19 safety measures are observed during in-person meetings.)
