What kind of person is a CASA advocate?

A CASA Advocate is you.

An Advocate does not need legal expertise or experience.

An Advocate is committed. The vast majority of cases last one to two years, and the amount of time spent on a case per month typically ranges between 8-10 hours. Volunteers must make case time a priority in order to provide quality advocacy.

An Advocate is objective. Volunteers research case records and speak to everyone involved in a child’s life, including their family members, foster parents, teachers, doctors, lawyers, social workers and others. Their third-party evaluations are based on facts, evidence and testimonies.

Advocates must be 21 years of age or older, undergo a background check and take part in a personal interview.
