Advocate for a Child, become a CASA Volunteer
The Court Appointed Special Advocate Program (CASA) provides a volunteer, community driven voice for abused & neglected children in court. A Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteer is a trained citizen that is appointed by a Family Court Judge to represent the best interests of an abused or neglected child in the court process. Children helped by CASA volunteers include those whose home placement is being determined by Family Court.
CASA volunteers offer children trust and advocacy during complex legal proceedings and more importantly during one of the most traumatic times in their lives. The uniqueness of a CASA volunteer is that this volunteer is assigned one case at a time and visits the child/ren on a weekly basis. This allows the volunteer to have more time to discover the child’s history, lifestyle and needs in an effort to present the Judge with more relevant information regarding the child’s circumstances. Our CASA program has been in existence since 1998.
We are always in need of volunteers like you, to advocate for children. To become a volunteer you must be at least 21 years of age and have a valid drivers license. To apply for this rewarding volunteer opportunity please contact Lauren Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 269.673.3791.
