What's Involved?

What does a CASA volunteer do?

CASA volunteers are the voice and advocates for children who have been abused and neglected. Working in conjunction with case professionals and attorneys, CASA volunteers advocate for the best interest of a child.

Being a CASA volunteer is a rewarding experience for both the child and the volunteer. As a volunteer, you'll be assigned a specific child that you will need to meet with a minimum of one time per month.

A CASA volunteer will also maintain contact with case professionals, parents, and/or foster parents, teachers, daycare providers, health providers, and other service providers as needed.

Things you could do with your child:

  • Take them to the park
  • Get an ice cream
  • Visit the library
  • Go out for a meal
  • Visit them in their home
  • Go for a walk or a bike ride
  • Take them to the movies

Steps to becoming a CASA volunteer:

  • Attend a Champions for CASA informational event to learn more (optional)
  • Attend CASA Program​ Orientation Program (mandatory)
  • Complete application with CASA (mandatory)
  • Complete 6-week training (mandatory)

Is this the same as being a foster parent?

Being a CASA volunteer is not the same as being a foster parent. Volunteering with CASA is a lower commitment way to help an abused or neglected child with a minimum required obligation of 2 hours of face-to-face time with your appointed child each month. However, we do find that many people who are considering becoming foster parents like to start as a CASA volunteer.

Who can be a CASA volunteer?

Anyone can be a CASA volunteer as long as you are able to maintain professionalism and confidentiality in your interactions with your assigned child. You must also:

  • Be at least 21 years of age.
  • Pass a basic background check, have a valid driver’s license/identification, valid phone number, and have a permanent address.
