Last year, 324 CASA Volunteers and staff advocated for 1,140 children in Jackson County. Sadly, this still leaves hundreds of children without the benefit of a CASA Volunteer. We’re always looking for committed, caring volunteers who can advocate for more children in the Jackson County Family Court system.
Being a CASA Volunteer doesn’t require any specific background or special education. CASA Volunteers come from many different walks of life. Some have years of experience working for children and families, some work in completely unrelated fields, and some even grew up in the foster care system themselves. Some are retirees, some work full-time. But they all share a heart for helping children, and a willingness to attend CASA Training, and undergo a background check.
So, what does it take to become a CASA Volunteer? The first step: Contact us to attend an online information session. After you attend an information session, a CASA Volunteer Specialist will contact you about training. As officers of the court, CASA Volunteers make a lifelong difference in the lives of the children they help.
