Detailed Information

CASA of Coos and Curry Counties is recruiting volunteers who can advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children. 

What does CASA stand for?
CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate.

Who are CASA volunteers?
CASA volunteers are compassionate, objective, self-motivated individuals from the community who are trained to speak on behalf of abused and neglected children. They come from all walks of life. About half of all CASA volunteers in the United States work full-time.

What is the role of a CASA volunteer?
A CASA volunteer provides a judge with objective information about the child to help the court make a sound decision about that child’s future. Each case is as unique as the child involved. The CASA volunteer forms an opinion as to what is in the best interest of the child for their future, such as being reunified with their parents, living with relatives, getting a permanent guardian or adoption. The CASA volunteer makes a recommendation on placement to the judge and follows through on the case until it is permanently resolved.
