CASA Volunteer vs. volunteer with CASA
CASA volunteers are everyday citizens who have undergone screening and training with their local CASA program. Once they are screened a trained, they are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. After the 30 hour training, CASA volunteers spend approximately 4 hours a month advocating for a child. You can learn more about CASA volunteers on the page, What is CASA?
