CASA Volunteer

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer is a trained citizen who is appointed by a judge to advocate for the best interests of a child in court. The CASA volunteer evaluates if it is in the child's best interest to stay with his or her parents or guardians, be placed in foster care, or be freed for permanent adoption. The CASA volunteer makes recommendations to the judge, and follows through on the case until it is permanently resolved.
