Upcoming Opportunities for Trained Volunteers
, Court Appointed Special Advocates, is a 30 hour training, on May 3rd, which prepares volunteers to serve as advocates to children’s cases of abuse and neglect. CASA is assigned by court order and is responsible to monitor the child’s health, mental health, education and permanency planning. Learn more about our CASA program
. Host Visitation
is a 15 hour training, whereby volunteers are assigned as Visit Hosts to supervise and coach families as they spend time together. Families are usually separated by foster care and research indicates that the more contact with the family of origin, the more likely the child will have reduced symptoms of trauma.

With each program, volunteers are well trained and supervised by professional staff.
