Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Sullivan County CASA provides screened, trained and supervised volunteers who are appointed by the Family Court Judge to speak up for the needs of abused and neglected children. The volunteers, each as an independent voice, advocate for the best interests of children, one child at a time. The volunteers are from all walks of life and are dedicated to reducing the amount of time a child spends in temporary foster care. A safe, permanent, and nurturing home for every child in Sullivan County is our goal.
Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. That's where CASA steps in. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) was created in 1977 to make sure the abuse and neglect these children originally suffered at home doesn't continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the system. As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court. The result is that a child is placed into a safe, loving home where he/she can thrive. It is the CASA vision to provide a volunteer for each and every abused and neglected child who needs one.
