CASA is the only volunteer organization to empower everyday citizens as officers of the court. In an overburdened social welfare system, abused and neglected children often slip through the cracks among hundreds of current cases. CASA volunteers change that. Appointed by judges, CASA volunteers typically handle just one case at a time — and commit to staying on that case until the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. While others may come and go, CASA volunteers provide the one constant that children need in order to thrive.
Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. Volunteers are needed to work with programs, special projects, fundraising, and letter writing campaigns.
