CASA volunteers give their time to change children’s lives. They are everyday citizens that judges appoint to advocate for the safety and well-being of children who are victims of parental abuse and neglect. They stand up for these children to help change their lives.
CASA volunteers listen first. Then they act. Volunteers get to know the child and talk with everyone in that child’s life—parents and relatives, foster parents, teachers, medical professionals, attorneys, social workers and others. They use the information they gather to inform judges and others of what the child needs and what will be the best permanent home for them.
