As a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), you would establish and maintain contact with a child, interview his or her parents, social workers, teachers, and others, and submit a written recommendation to the court outlining what is best for the child. You would become the “eyes and ears” for the judge and help ensure that “your” child does not become lost in the court system. If you care and have about 10 hours a month to spend, being a CASA can be very gratifying work.
There are numerous ways to help CASA. We have a continual need for office help, people who can volunteer a half day each week on a regular basis. In addition, we need people to help coordinate fund raising and other activities.
Friends of CASA sponsors annual fund raisers including Hearts for Children and others… Corporate/business sponsorships through event underwriting are greatly needed. You could also assist by attending the events, serving on a committee, or donating merchandise or services to be used as auction items.
