About

CASA volunteers are sworn officers of the court and advocate one-on-one for abused and neglected children and youth in the foster care system to make sure they do not get lost in the over-burdened legal system or languish in an inappropriate placement. They are their voice in court and speak up for the child or youth’s best interests during the dependency process.

CASA volunteers visit weekly with the child or youth, and maintain ongoing communication with all parties involved in the case such as the child's attorney, social worker, teacher, etc. to best serve the child or youth's interests. For the volunteer, this means a commitment of a minimum of two years and an average of 15-20 hours per month of service.

You must be 21 years old to volunteer.
