Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA volunteers, are vital to the well-being of children in foster care. These volunteer positions are available and needed in every state of the United States. CASA workers are assigned to specific children and, unlike caseworkers, stay with that child throughout their time in foster care. CASA volunteers are a liaison between the foster child and the system, relaying special needs and concerns as they arise. The CASA organization recently had an adoption training in Arkansas where the volunteers learned about the possibilities of adoption for foster children. To become a CASA volunteer in your state, contact your local Department of Youth and Family Services.
