Will you be the voice for a child in foster care?
"My CASA volunteering gives my life MEANING and is also FUN. I can schedule it to suit my calendar. My CASA youth and I jointly choose what to do, so we both have fun. What else am I doing (work, exercise, movie-going, hanging with friends, travel, hiking, biking, cooking, etc.) that could possibly be as meaningful and satisfying as creating an authentic, warm connection with a young person in need of acceptance?" - Monica, current CASA Volunteer
A CASA is an advocate for an abused and neglected child in foster care. In a life full of uncertainty and endless change, you can be one consistent and caring adult. Becoming a CASA is likely to be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life, full of surprises, challenges, and self-discovery.
You must be 21 or older to apply. Current Foster Parents are not eligible to be CASA Volunteers.
The Fall Classic Training begins on Monday, October 7th and meets every Tuesday and Thursday from 6-9 PM for five consecutive weeks*. The Fall Classic swearing-in ceremony will be held on Thursday, November 14th.
*There will be no class on 10/8, 10/22 or 10/31. Instead we will hold a class on Wednesday, 10/23.
