Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children is a network of community-based CASA/ Guardian ad Litem (GAL) programs that recruit, train and support citizen-advocates to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in courtrooms and communities across the country. Citizen-advocates - empowered directly by the courts and trained by local CASA/GAL programs - offer judges the critical information they need to ensure that children’s rights and needs are addressed until they are placed in loving, permanent homes.
CASA volunteers are ordinary people who care about children and come from all backgrounds. You must be at least 21 years old to volunteer and make a one year commitment to the program. No legal expertise is required. For more information and for required application please visit our website: www.jccasa.net or contact any member of our staff.
