VOLUNTEER

HOW YOU CAN HELP

First Judicial CASA has three different ways you can advocate for children in our community:

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer is a trained citizen who is appointed by a judge to represent the best interests of a child in court.  CASAs are individuals who express a genuine concern for the welfare of children.  The ability to communicate, in both written and verbal forms, is a strong factor for consideration.

The CEVC Volunteer will observe the visit between the child and parent and will document the interaction, unusual incidents, and inappropriate behaviors by either parent or child, inappropriate conversations or questions and terminated visits.
