Would you like to make a difference for a child in foster care? Join Jasper County CASA by becoming a volunteer. Our volunteers go through a 30-hour training class, are sworn in by a judge, and then are assigned a case. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) meet with their child(ren) at least twice a month, but many choose to see their kids more often! Volunteers also work with caseworkers, therapists, juvenile officers, teachers, etc. to ensure all of the child’s needs are being met! Throughout the case our volunteers write reports to the court, updating them on how the child is doing and giving recommendations for the case.
Children with a CASA are half as likely to re-enter the foster care system as compared to children who do not have a CASA, and are also more likely to succeed in school and find a safe, permanent home.
YOU can change a child’s story. Visit jascocasa.org to find out more or call 417-680-3250 today!
