CASA Volunteer

CASA volunteer advocates are ordinary people, just like you, with an extraordinary desire to help children. After you complete a CASA training course, you’ll be appointed by a judge to one foster care case involving a child or set of siblings dealing with the issues of abuse and neglect. You’ll gather information to help identify the child’s needs, present written reports at court hearings, help the child understand court proceedings, recommend services and more—all to help the judge make the best decisions to guide the child out of the foster care system and into a safe, permanent home. CASA volunteers must be able to commit 10-20 hours a month.

About usCASA of Kent County is a non-profit organization that looks out for the best interests of abused and neglected children as they make their way through the family court system. We do this by training volunteers to investigate, facilitate, advocate and monitor services for children who are wards of the court due to abuse and/or neglect. CASA volunteers present first-hand information and observations to help judges make the very best decisions about children’s futures. No other organization does what we do in Kent County—so when you support CASA, you are providing what may be the only opportunity for these children to overcome their family traumas and build a new life.
