Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
CASA is a non-profit organization which consists of volunteers who advocate for abused or neglected children in our region. These children are generally placed in foster care by the courts and CASA is assigned to investigate the child's case and decide "What is in the best interest for this child." It is a very serious and needed work. Judges need to review all the information they can possibly receive to decide future placement of a child. CASA seeks safe, permanent homes for these children. Advocates for Children, Inc. (formerly known as CASA of Orange County Inc.) began in December 1994.
Advocates for Children, Inc. consists of Volunteers who go to bat for abused children in the court system. CASA volunteers must go through at least 30-33 hours of intensive training, be certified by a judge, and commit to at least 10-12 hours per month on a child abuse or neglect case for at lease 1 year. A volunteer must be twenty one years of age, submit to a CANRIS and criminal checks, and complete extensive application which allows the organization to check references. Volunteers should be committed and diligent in their efforts for these at-risk children.
