Other Ways to Help



“As a foster child you don't know the face of consistency - because everything is always changing. My CASA Volunteer was the only thing that didn't change... She was the only consistent face I saw and she remains in my life to this day.”

Becoming an Advocate

How can I become a CASA?

Thank you for your interest in the Advocate Training Program.  To be accepted into the training program, you must complete an application and participate in an interview.  In order to become a CASA, you must complete approximately 30 hours of training and court observation, and pass a DCFS background check. Training sessions are held at the discretion of CASA based upon current volunteer needs.
