Be a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA)
CASA volunteers, bringing a variety of experiences to their work as advocates on behalf of abused and neglected children. There are no special educational or professional requirements, but advocates must :

• Be at least 21 years old 
• Live in the greater Montgomery County area. 
• Be willing to volunteer 10-15 hours a month 
• Go through a background screening and receive 40 hours of training before being assigned to a child.

The CASA volunteer’s primary responsibility is to serve as the “eyes and ears” of the Court. CASAs research all aspects of their assigned child’s life–his or her present living situation, biological and extended family, school situation, etc.–and make written recommendations to the Juvenile Court as to the child’s best interest.

As a volunteer you will become one of over 73,000 volunteers nationally. Voices for Children Montgomery has trained  more than 1,800 volunteers to serve as advocates. Despite this success, the voices of many abused and neglected children here in Montgomery County are not being heard due to  the need for additional volunteers — that is where you come in! 

If you would like more information about becoming a volunteer with  Voices for Children Montgomery, please complete  and submit the form or call us at (301) 340-7458.  If you live outside the greater Montgomery County area and wish to locate a CASA program near you, please contact National CASA at 1-800-628-3233 or visit their website at www.casaforchildren.org.
