   Spring 2023 -  NEW CASA ORIENTATION & TRAINING   

Volunteer to "Change a Child's Story "

Court-appointed special advocate (CASA) volunteers make a life-changing difference for children who have experienced abuse or neglect.

Each volunteer is appointed by a judge to advocate for a child’s best interest in court. Our volunteers help judges develop a fuller picture of each child’s life. Their advocacy enables judges to make the most well-informed decision for each child.
 

Our orientation is a forum to sign up as well as to ask questions so you can make an informed decision about being a CASA. Even if you're not sure if this is what you would like to do, but are interested in learning more about CASA, please come. It's another way of spreading the word and work to help our kids.

 

New CASA Spring Orientation:
Date: Friday, February 24, 2023
Time: 5pm- 6pm
Location: Polk County Courthouse 1st floor conference room in Dallas.  Please enter, through the Jefferson Street side of the building. We'll have greeters there giving directions to the meeting room. 

New CASA Spring Training begins Friday, March 10, 2023, and ends April 28th

 

This mandatory (8-week) training will give you the tools to advocate for our most vulnerable children in Polk County Oregon. 

Training will be from 4pm to 7pm. 
Location: TBD - Dallas 

 

The training will give you the tools, rules, situations and resources for being the best CASA you can be!
 

TRAINING AND MATERIALS ARE ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!


What do CASA Volunteers do?

Our volunteers listen first. Then they act.
Volunteers get to know the child by talking with everyone in that child's life: parents and relatives, foster parents, teachers, medical professionals, attorneys, social workers and others.

 

They use the information they gather to help judges and others understand what the child needs and to help the child find a safe, permanent and nurturing home.


Who Can Be a Volunteer?
You do not have to be a lawyer or a social worker to be a volunteer. We welcome people from all walks of life. We are simply looking for people who care about children and have common sense.

 

As an advocate, you will be thoroughly trained and well-supported by professional staff, who will help you through each case.

 

If interested please attend our New CASA Training Orientation Friday, February 24 at 5pm at the Polk County Courthouse in Dallas OR. This is a forum to ask questions to help you make an informed decision about becoming a CASA volunteer.
