CASA of Baltimore is a volunteer-driven non-profit child advocacy organiation.
Volnteers are recruited, trained, and supervised to work on behalf of abused and neglected children involved in the juvenile court system helping to ensure safe and permanent homes for these children.
CASA volunteers conduct independent reviews, make recommendations to the court and monitor court orders to ensure that children receive appropriate services and timely resolutions to out of home placements.
CASA volunteers come from all walks of life and receive on-going professional supervision, support and training for the important work that they do.
Volunteers can also work as researchers, visitors, monitors and reporters to the court. Volunteers must be 21 years of age, participate in an individual interview, provide references, submit to criminal background, motor vehicle, and social service clearances, participate in 35 hours of pre-service training and commit to one year of volunteer service.
Generally, each volunteer advocate is assigned to only one child or sibling group and is expected to provide approximately 10 hours/month in support of the child.
