Imagine having a childhood where you were mistreated so terribly that you spent more time in the hospital than out...imagine having a parent who left you wondering when you would eat again...imagine raising your brothers and sisters, because one day your parents left and never came back...
CASA volunteers advocate for children who face these types of obstacles and help them see that life can give everyone a second chance! Volunteers are appointed to speak up for the best interests of abused and neglected children involved in juvenile court proceedings. They visit with the child(ren) on the case, learn about his or her life, make recommendations to the Judge, and do everything they can to keep that child from "falling through the cracks."
The role of the CASA volunteer is tremendously important. If you are passionate about helping abused and neglected children, or have an interest in child welfare or juvenile law, CASA may be for you! Contact us to learn more about the program and how we will support you in your advocacy for this vulnerable population.
