Lift up a child's life. Learn more about CASA volunteering
A new case of child abuse or neglect enters the Fairfax County Domestic & Juvenile Relations Court system once every 38 hours. These children need dedicated, caring advocates to help ensure that their best interests are represented in court.
That's where , or CASA volunteers, enter the picture. CASA volunteers investigate a child's situation and speak for the best interests of the child. Volunteers visit the children on their cases twice a month and interview social workers, therapists, teachers and other professionals, all the while gathering information to report to court.
