Please visit the new page to apply.
LaSalle County CASA is seeking volunteer advocates to serve the abused and neglected children in our county. Volunteers must be 21 and able to pass a background clearance. No felony convictions will be allowed. Volunteers get to know the assigned child/children on their case and report to the court what is occurring in that child's life. They advocate for their best interests and ensure that the child's needs are met throughout the time the child spends in care. All volunteers receive classroom training and ongoing support in their role as CASA volunteers.
