Volunteer

CASA is the only volunteer organization that empowers everyday citizens as appointed members of the court. Are you ready to stand up for a child who needs you? Inquire today about the power you have to change a child’s life.

childvolunteerA Court Advocate is a trained community volunteer, appointed by a district judge, to represent the best interests of abused and neglected children in court. Volunteer advocates independently investigate the child’s situation and make recommendations to Rockwall and Kaufman County District Court Judges as to what permanent placement would be best for that particular child.

The CASA volunteer advocate experience is unlike any other volunteer experience out there, and there are a number of minimum requirements that must be met in order to become an advocate. All volunteer advocates must be at least 21 years of age, and commit to a minimum of one year as a CASA volunteer.

In order to best support our volunteer advocates in their work, each volunteer is paired with a staff Casework Supervisor who provides continued, one-on-one guidance and support to the advocate as he/she works a case.
