BECOME A CASA TODAY www.casalasvegas.org CASA Volunteers work with abused and neglected children that have been placed into the foster care system. They work as their advocate by providing support and ensuring that the child's welfare is the highest priority. Today in Las Vegas, there are thousands of children in foster care. Many are the silent victims of abuse and neglect, spending their entire childhoods being tossed from house to house, slipping through the cracks in the foster care system. It is never too late to volunteer and help a child in need. You can make a difference, today! CASA is the opportunity you have been looking for. Please join us and see how much you can do to improve the quality of another person's life.
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.

Through no fault of their own, far too many children in this community are faced with difficult family situations. Powerless to change the circumstances that led to D.F.S. involvement, children need adults to make good decisions about choices that impact their lives. When should children be removed, where should they live, with whom should they live, how long should they live there and can they return home - just to name a few of the decisions that are made everyday about children in protective custody. This is where CASA advocates can assist. CASA volunteers are that voice for the child. CASA volunteers research each case, monitor the case for progress, help identify resources and services for the child, and advocate in all venues to represent the child's best interest. CASA volunteers also voice the child's desire. If this sounds like a program you want to support or know about, please reach out or attend an orientation! There are so many amazing children who need our help.
This is most rewarding volunteer opportunity I have ever had the privilege to be a part of. If you want to make a real difference in lives of abused and neglected children that are suffering in the foster care system...this is the opportunity for you.
Do not hesitate or think that it's "too hard" or requires "too much time". The efforts you put into this change lives...period! There is no price tag for that. There is no higher priority than helping others and assisting when called upon. This organization needs your help and so do the children. Please...attend the informational meeting...it will definitely change your life!
