Are you interested in becoming a volunteer for Jasper County

CASA?

Volunteering with CASA can change a child’s life.

By volunteering with Jasper County CASA, you will be assigned to review a child’s abuse or neglect case and spend time conducting interviews with many individuals from that child’s life. You will be tasked with determining the best path for the child by providing fact-based recommendations to the judge involved with the case.

The most important aspect to this is that you remain a solid part of the child’s life throughout their case.  The goal is always to find the best permanent home for the child, but the time spent during the case before then is a maze of complexities, making your involvement vital.

Can I volunteer?

If you meet the following requirements, you could be eligible to volunteer!

  • at least 21 years old
  • high school graduate or equivalent
  • have ability to communicate clearly
  • must attend 30-hour National CASA training curriculum
  • be willing, and able, to stay within the volunteer program until your first assigned case is closed
  • be willing, and able, to participate in interviews, provide a list of references and complete background checks
  • appear in child’s case meetings and court (with notice)
  • write court reports to the court
