Organization Information

Mission Statement

Fairbanks CASA recruits, trains, supervises and supports volunteers who serve foster children and youth as a court appointed special advocate (CASA).

Description

Nobody longs for a safe and loving family more than a child in foster care. As a CASA volunteer, you will be the one consistent adult in these children's lives, fighting for and protecting their right to be treated with the dignity and respect every child deserves. You will not only bring positive change to the lives of these vulnerable children, but in doing so, you will enrich your life as well.

CASA volunteers get to know the child by talking to everyone involved in that child's life: parents, relatives, foster parents, teachers, medical professionals, attorneys, social workers and others. They use the information to inform judges and others of what the child needs and what will be the best permanent plan.

You do not have to be a lawyer or a social worker to be a CASA volunteer. We welcome people from all walks of life. We are looking for people who are about children and have common sense. You will be thoroughly trained and well supported by professional staff to help you through each case.

You must complete a free 30+ hour training course, agree to stay with a case until it's closed, pass a background check, and be sworn into service by a judge.

To get started, visit our website, follow our Facebook page, or attend an information meeting. We look forward to hearing from you!
