About

The Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program is a professionally supervised volunteer service, which advocates for the best interests of children in Westchester County's foster care system. Volunteers receive 32 hours of traing to learn about the foster care and family court systems and circumstances that can lead to foster care placement. Volunteers learn how to: * Investigate all aspects of a case. * Recommend a course of action. * Facilitate the resolution of the problem. * Monitor progress towards established goals.
