Child Advocates speak up in court for children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse and/or neglect. The CASA Volunteer advocates for the child's medical, dental, educational, psychological and recreational needs. Volunteers will be screened (fingerprinted and interviewed)before accepted into the 30 hour training program. After volunteers are trained, they will be assigned one child or set of siblings. They will review DCP&P documents and interview the child, relatives, teachers and anyone important in the child's life. Volunteers then write a report that is submitted to the family court judge. They also may attend court hearings. Each volunteer must make a minimum of 1 year commitment once assigned to a child.
