CASA - A Powerful Voice in a Child's Life

CASA of San Joaquin County is currently recruiting community volunteers to serve as "eyes and ears" for the Court and provide a "voice" for a child; at home, in school and in the court room.

CASA of San Joaquin County provides the screening, training and on-going support necessary to be successful advocates for the neediest of children in our County.

The CASA volunteer provides continuity by staying on the case until it is permanently resolved.

Volunteers are expected to have contact with their CASA child every week, attend court hearings as needed, and provide written reports to the court. The written reports include all interviews, visits, and assessments taken by the CASA in regard to recommendations based on the child’s very best interest.

If you, or someone you know is interested in becoming a CASA volunteer please contact Dani Daly at (209) 644-5331
