A CASA volunteer advocates for children who are involved in the juvenile court system as a result of abuse and/or neglect. Volunteers investigate, negotiate, monitor and advocate for the best interest of the child. CASA's advise the St. Joseph Probate Court by testifying at court hearings and by submitting thorough written reports.
The CASA program involves many requirements due to the nature of the volunteer work. Even though it seems a daunting list, most requirements are simple and straightforward, requiring little to no effort on the part of the volunteer.
