CASA for Kids*
Advocates for abused and neglected children.
Programs and Services
- CASA for Kids of Washington County recruits, screens, trains and supports community volunteers to serve as best interest advocates for children and young people who have experienced abuse and neglect and who are involved with the Washington County Child welfare system through Dependency Court. A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer is assigned to one child or sibling group and works to ensure that child or sibling group does not fall through the cracks of an overburdened child welfare system. The CASA volunteer advocate visits with the child wherever they resides on a regular basis, talks to teachers, medical providers and therapists and obtains records about that child to compile for a report for the court for each hearing pertaining to that child. CASA for Kids provides community volunteers from all walks of life with robust screening and interviewing, 35 hours of pre-service training, and support for navigating the child welfare system to ensure adherence to National CASA/GAL and PA CASA standards.
