Volunteer Child Advocate (CASA)
2 people are interested
In an overburdened social welfare system, abused and neglected children will often slip through the cracks. A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) represents the best interest of abused, neglected and deprived children in court proceedings within our community. A CASA serves as the eyes and ears of the court by providing information that the judge needs in order to make a decision that is in the child’s best interest. CASAs are appointed to a child's case and are responsible for taking time to find about the child. CASA volunteers search for information, review records, observe visits, talk to agency workers, write reports, and appear in court for the hearings. CASA's advocate for the best interests of the children.
If you have a heart for children and believe all children deserve to a safe home, a permanent home as quickly as possible, this is the opportunity for you.
