Become a Volunteer

You can make a difference, one child at a time. CASA volunteers are ordinary people, just like you, with an extraordinary desire to help children.

What CASA volunteers do

CASA volunteers are paired with a foster child, get to know that child and his or her circumstances through monthly visits.  Information is gathered from teachers, doctors, and social workers and volunteers make recommendations to a court judge based on the child’s needs. Volunteers influence a foster child’s life across many significant and far-reaching life concerns such as medical care, academics, and enrichment activities.
