Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The mission of CASA at Woodlawn is to provide trained and supervised volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused & neglected children. Assigned by the Judge, the volunteer works on behalf of the child, speaking up for what they feel is in the child's best interest. The volunteer works collaboratively with the attorneys and social workers in an attempt to achieve the best and quickest result for the child. Our goal is a safe, permanent and loving home for each child.
Every year over half a million of our nation's children reside in foster care or out of home placements. Most have been abused and/or neglected in the very place they should be the most safe, their own homes.
The child victim of abuse or neglect is removed from their home and parents, placed with relatives or strangers, and must wait for judges, attorneys and social workers to decide their futures.
