A CASA volunteer is a trained volunteer who is appointed by a judge to speak for the best interests of a child in foster care.

 Once training is complete, CASA volunteers are assigned to a case. They investigate all resources connected with the safety and well-being of a child. These resources include parents, medical and school personnel, lawyers and caseworkers. Then the CASA provides the judge with a written report regarding the best interest of the child. Additionally, the CASA maintains close contact with the child throughout the duration of the case. The CASA's objectivity helps the court to make a sound decision about the child's safe and permanent home.

Being a CASA volunteer can make the difference for a child between homelessness and a safe home, between dropping out and completing school, between unemployment and success, between jail and becoming a productive member of society.

To learn how you can become a CASA volunteer contact, Lisa Thompson, CASA of Warren and Forest Counties Director at 723-4434 or email casa@jdfamilycenter.org.
