Become a Volunteer

Hope Needs A Helping Hand

CASA volunteers are adults (age 21 or older) who come from every walk of life and share a commitment to improving children’s lives, a willingness to learn, and an open mind toward different life experiences.

A Court Appointed Special Advocate/ Guardian ad Litem (CASA/GAL) volunteer gathers information from everyone involved in a child’s daily life, including members of the child’s family, foster parents, teachers, lawyers, social workers and other relevant persons. Then, they report to a judge to advocate for the child’s best interests.

The CASA/GAL monitors the child’s progress ensuring the child’s voice, needs, and wishes are heard by the Court and that the child’s right to a safe, permanent home is acted on sensitively and expediently.
