Mission Statement

The mission of Crime Victim Services = Court Appointed Special Advocate / Guardian ad Litem (CASA/GAL) Program is to advocate for the best interest of abused, neglected, and dependent children to the courts with continuously trained volunteers who focus on investigation / assessment, relationships, and reports so each child can have a safe and permanent home.

Description

Opportunity for citizens 21 years and older with a minimum of a high school diploma to advocate for abused and neglected children as a Court Appointed Special Advocate or CASA. 40 hours of initial training are offered twice a year in the Spring and Fall. The work requires a flexible schedule because it occurs during the daytime business hours. As an officer of the Court or Guardian ad Litem you will conduct an independent fact finding investigation, write a report with recommendations, and advocate for the "Best Interest" of the child and monitor the case to ensure that what the Court has ordered is occuring and in a timely manner. You will be responsible for 1-2 cases at a time which will require 10-15 hours per month.

I have 12 more weeks of school in the criminal justice field in order to receive my Associates Degree. I am an individual who wants to help these children that have been abused and or neglected. One day I will be a Child Protection Investigator. I want not just to help these children but to get sex offenders off the streets and cyber space. I want to speak up for these children so they to can feel safe. I feel in my heart that CASA will teach me more on how I can help these children and so I can full fill my dream to become a Child Protection Investigator.
