CASA Volunteers Needed
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) for Children
We are looking for people who want to be a Court Appointed Special Advocate called a “CASA” Volunteer. Anyone that is at least 21 years of age is welcome to apply. A CASA is a trained citizen appointed by a judge to speak for a child who has been abused or neglected. As a CASA Volunteer, you are the child’s voice in the legal and social service system.
If you want to make a difference in a child’s life, be a CASA Volunteer.
Since the inception of CASA, volunteers nationwide have helped more than two million children find safe, permanent homes in which they can thrive. In Maine we currently have over 100 volunteers who come from all walks of life to speak for Maine children in courts across the state. You don’t need to have any special educational background. We will provide you with the training you will need.
In an overburdened social welfare system, abused and neglected children can slip through the cracks if they don’t have someone to give them a voice. CASA volunteers change that.
You can make a difference. Lift up a child.
