Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) are trained volunteers that only focus on one case at a time. Specifically, the CASA interviews the child, parents, family members, school officials, health providers, and others who know the child’s history; reviews all records concerning the case and makes recommendations to the court regarding a safe, permanent placement for the child.
Volunteers unable to commit to working on a child's case can also help by serving on the board, assisting with fundraising projects, serving as surrogate parents for students without a parent/guardian to represent their interests in planning special education services with school system, acting as hospital sitters for foster children who are sick, helping with special events, helping in the office, and/or writing newsletter articles.
