Anyone over the age of 21, who can pass local, federal & DCS background checks and wants to make a difference in the life of a child can serve as a CASA.

CASA offers 32 hours of training, plus court observation time and ongoing staff support throughout your
time as a CASA. Continued education is provided and peer relationships are encouraged.

While all cases vary, our volunteers average 5-10 hours a month on their cases. However, there is often
a little extra time needed at the beginning of the case.

Absolutely! Most of our volunteers have full-time careers. One great thing about CASA is that it allows
you to set much of your own schedule.

We start each CASA with one case. This may include more than one child. You decide if/when you’re
ready to take on more. Most volunteers only work one case at a time, while some have multiple cases.

Yes, each county has specific information and updates that we provide during training.

We ask that all of our volunteers commit to a year or the life of the case in order to provide our children
with a stable person advocating for them. We understand that situations come up in life and that you
may need to take a break or step away. We ask that you speak to your supervisor should this occur.


There are more children in our county who need an advocate than we have volunteers. I encourage people to give it a try.
Go to the training; see what you think about it. It’s really not hard; it doesn’t take a lot of time, and it’s very rewarding.
