CASA is the only volunteer organization that empowers everyday citizens as appointed members of the court. In an overburdened social welfare system, abused and neglected children often slip through the cracks among hundreds of current cases. CASA volunteers in Mitchell and the surrounding communities change that. Appointed by judges, CASA volunteers typically handle just one case at a time and commit to staying on that case until the child is placed in a safe, permanent home.

After completing a training program, you'll be appointed by judges to speak on behalf of the best interests of a child whose case is in juvenile court.

You'll read court documents and visit the child in the foster home. You'll talk to social workers, teachers, doctors and family members. Then, you'll make a report the court about the child's situation.

While others may come and go, CASA volunteers provide that one constant that children need in order to thrive.

Are you ready to stand up for a child who needs you? The ultimate goal: A safe, permanent and loving home for a special child!

CARING IS THE ONLY EXPERIENCE YOU NEED!

You don't need a law degree or social work background to be a CASA Volunteer. You don't have to have all the time in the world. The best qualification: practical experience with children, and a commitment to seeing children grow up in safe, establish permanence and have the opportunity to thrive.
