Piedmont CASA is looking for caring, motivated, and objective men and women who are committed to helping vulnerable children in our community. CASA Volunteers come from all walks of life. They have a variety of professional, educational, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds. No special experience is required, but you do need to be at least 21 years of age. The boys and girls we serve range in age from newborn to 18+, and include victims of abuse and neglect. CASA Volunteers visit their child in a variety of settings, offering them trust and advocacy during complex legal proceedings. They explain to the child the events that are happening, the reasons they all are in court and the roles the judge, lawyers, and social workers play. CASA Volunteers also encourage the child to express his or her own opinion and hopes. No two children are alike. As a CASA Volunteer, your most important job is to make sure the court knows who your child is. You accomplish that by providing the judge with a comprehensive court report based on your thorough investigation. With your court report, the judge has the information and insight he or she needs to make the best decisions for the unique child you serve. In FY20, court reports written by Piedmont CASA Volunteers contained 586 recommendations. Of those recommendations, 95% were accepted. This is a testament to the commitment of our Volunteers, and to the confidence our local judges have in their reports. You can change a child’s story – by becoming a Piedmont CASA Volunteer.
