Last year, 361 CASA Volunteers advocated for 1,265 children in Jackson County — the most in our agency’s history. Sadly, this still leaves hundreds of children on a waiting list for our services. We’re always looking for committed, caring volunteers to reach out to even more abused and neglected children in the Jackson County court system.
CASA advocates come from many different walks of life. Some have years of experience working for children and families, and some grew up in the foster care system and have felt the sorrow of moving from home to home firsthand.
Being a CASA Volunteer doesn’t require any specific background or special education; it only requires the desire to help abused and neglected children find safe, permanent homes.
So, what does it take to become a CASA Volunteer? The first step: Contact us for orientation times. After you complete orientation, a CASA Volunteer Coordinator will contact you about training. As officers of the court, CASA Volunteers make a lifelong difference in the lives of the children they help.
