If you can commit to spending 2 to 4 hours a week offering advocacy, friendship, and emotional support to a child or young adult in foster care, WE NEED YOU!

"If it weren't for you, school would have been harder. If it weren't for you I would not have started school with new clothing. If it weren't for you, I would not have had a wonderful senior year. If it weren't for you, I wouldn't be me. Thank you." ~ Written by a CASA Youth\

Studies have shown that involvement of a positive role model in the lives of children has profound effects on them. Being a CASA volunteer doesn't mean you have to be a replacement parent or a superhero. It means being someone who cares and shows up.

CASA volunteers are everyday people, trained by CASA and then appointed by judges to advocate for the safety of children who have been removed from their homes because of abuse or neglect. Volunteers are fully supported by a staff case supervisor and are part of a team that works in the best interests of the child.

We currently have 40 children in our waitlist to be matched with their CASA volunteer.
