About

Volunteers are needed to be CASA volunteers, advocates for abused and neglected children in Harford County.

A CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer is an ordinary community member who is appointed to represent the best interests of a child victim of abuse or neglect in court. Children helped by CASA volunteers include those whose home placement is being determined in juvenile court.

A CASA volunteer has three roles:
- To serve as a fact finder for the judge by thoroughly researching the current and background facts of each assigned case.

- To provide these facts in report form to the judge and to speak for the child in the courtroom, representing the child's best interests.

- To continue to act as an overseer during the life of the case, ensuring that it is brought to a swift and appropriate conclusion in the best interest of the child

By taking on the above roles, the CASA volunteer is in a unique position to make a difference in a childs life.
