What do CASA Volunteers Do?
A CASA volunteer, we provide a consistent presence for the child and family and help find, engage, and strengthen a support network for the child and family. CASA Volunteers also address mental, physical, and education needs, while helping keep children connected to their culture and cultural identity and advocating to keep families connected and together when safe and possible.
