CASA Advocates are volunteers. They are not social workers. They are not paid. CASA Advocates are members of our community just like you. They are educators, service workers, retirees, and people who have aged out of foster care. CASA volunteers stay with a foster child through the entire court process. They represent stability and safety to children in the foster care system, who often have none. CASA Volunteers work with legal and child welfare professionals, educators, service providers and family members to ensure the child’s voice is heard. Their advocacy enables judges to make the most well-informed decision for each child. Apply today to help change a child's story!
