CASA red and blue
Advocating for the best interest of children in foster care in Newton and Walton counties

A CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer is an integral factor in a child's life in foster care. Children in foster care that have a CASA volunteer spend an average of 8 months less in foster care. You can make that difference happen with just a little of your time.

As a volunteer your basic requirements are just a few! You will be expected to:

  • Visit your assigned foster child(ren) a minimum once a month.
  • Write recommendations for court hearings
  • Attend the court hearings, if possible, to support your foster child.

All volunteers are welcome - All you need to succeed is the willingness to connect with a child in the foster care system and support their best interests. You WILL make a difference in the life of a child!

Our next orientation class begins in January 2019. Please complete an application online at https://www.alcovycasa.org/get_involved
