Description

Become a CASA volunteer if you are ready to make a difference in a child's life.

CASA volunteers are everyday citizens appointed by judges to advocate for the safety and well-being of children who have been removed from their homes due to parental abuse or neglect.

They stand up for these children, represent their best interests in courtrooms and other settings and help change their lives.

For many abused and neglected children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives.
