Who Can Be an Advocate?
Can you be a CASA volunteer? All it really takes is a caring heart.
What exactly does a CASA volunteer advocate do?
Why does the Advocate do this?
A child in the court’s care is frightened, removed from all they know, and often changes residences repeatedly. For these children, a CASA volunteer may be the only constant during this frightening, uncertain time. Few volunteer roles have such a critical and immediate impact on the life of a child as that of a CASA volunteer advocate!
Real life example: of how many people one San Luis Obispo child reported to during just two months (there were more before CASA was assigned).
