Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The mission of the Dependency CASA Program is to assist the Juvenile Division of King County Superior Court by recruiting and training community volunteers to represent the best interest of allegedly abused and neglected children involved in dependency proceedings. The primary obligation of this representation is to independently investigate the circumstances of the children and to formulate recommendations to the court.
The King County Superior Court Dependency CASA Program was created to support the needs of abused and neglected children through the use of committed and caring volunteers. The program is served by an Advisory Board with representatives from the local community.The Dependency CASA Program was conceptualized in 1976 by the Honorable David W. Soukup of King County Superior Court. Due to the success of the program many court jurisdictions throughout the country began replicating the Seattle model. A national association was formed in 1981 and the phrase Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) was adopted as a national designation for trained volunteers who advocate for abused and neglected children. Volunteer opportunities exist in Seattle as well as at the Regional Justice Center in South King County.
