Richmond CASA needs volunteers to serve children in our community!
 
Every abused or neglected child needs a caring adult to advocate for his or her wellbeing.  That’s where Richmond CASA comes in. 
 
Court-Appointed Special Advocates (“CASAs”) are everyday citizens appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children.  CASAs make sure children don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social services systems or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes.  Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home.  For many abused children, their CASA will be the one constant adult presence in their lives. 
 
The City of Richmond has seen a rise in the number of abuse and neglect cases this year, and Richmond CASA currently has almost 50 children on their waiting list.  If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a CASA, please contact Heather Farber at (804) 646-5180  or heather.farber@richmondgov.com, or visit Richmond CASA’s website for more information: http://grscan.com/programs/richmond-casa/. The next training class begins April 4th, so please fill out an application today!
