Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
CASA's mission is to advocate for the best interest of the child/children alleged to be neglected or abused and appointed to us through the Courts. We will accomplish this by recruiting,training, and supervising dedicated community volunteers. Following sucessful completion of training, volunteers are sworn in by the Judges to be Court Appointed Special Advocates. These volunteers will be able to research and to relay accurate information to the court, speaking up for the child/children in all court hearings, monitoring the home or foster care services. This will facilitate placement of that child/children in a safe, healthy,permanent home in a expedient manner. The goal being to protect the child/children, have a stable loving family raise the child/children, whether biologically, relatives, or through adoption. CASA ensures children are not 'lost' in the system of the Courts and foster care, and in preventing abuse, helps prevent juvenile delinquency.
