How Can I Help?

There are many opportunities for people to get involved with what we do as an organization depending on what fits you best.

Here is how you can make a difference  Volunteer Now

Advocate

Children in foster care need volunteers to speak up for them!  You can be the difference in a child's life!  CASA volunteers work directly with the children.  Volunteer Advocates work up to 20 hours a month to visit the children, go to court, and keep in contact with the people the child comes into contact with.  CASA volunteers go through 30 hours of training and are then sworn in as an officer of the court.  CASA Volunteer Coordinators are available to help CASA volunteers with any questions or concerns they have about the case.  Advocates make an impact in these children's lives by showing them that there is always someone there to speak for them.

Board of Directors

These are the people who help make decisions on funding, activities, and support staff and volunteers.  They meet the 3rd Friday of every month at noon to discuss CASA business matters.

Friends of CASA

 This is the group formed to raise awareness within the community about what we do here at CASA.  They help with presentations to community groups and churches and with events such as Breakfast with Santa, Golf Tournament and the Annual Awards Banquet.  For more information about joining the Friends of CASA group, please call (817) 599-6224 or email to casa@casahopeforchildren.org.

Training

New Advocate Training Classes are frequently offered to the community at no charge.  Training is approximately 30 hours with 3 hours of required courtroom observation.  At the end of the training, CASA Volunteers are sworn in by a judge and become an officer of the court.  Volunteer advocates must be at least 21 years of age and can expect to spend 15 to 20 hours a month on their case.  Please check our Events Calendar for the next training class and you can submit an application online using the red Volunteer button above.
