Become a CASA Volunteer

The CASA/GAL volunteer is guided by the “best interest” principle when advocating for a child.  This means that the volunteer Knows the child well enough to identify the child’s needs. The volunteer makes fact-based recommendations to the court about appropriate resources to meet those needs and informs the court of the child’s wishes, whether or not those wishes are, in the opinion of the CASA/GAL volunteer, in the child’s best interest.
