“You start out to change a child’s life, and find you’ve also changed your own.”

– Lou Smith, CASA Volunteer

Many people ask us – how can I help? There are many ways to help CASA of Allegheny County fulfill its mission of providing powerful voices for abused and neglected children.

The volunteer advocate program is at the heart of CASA’s service and is a shining example of ordinary individuals from the community making an extraordinary impact in the lives of abused children.

CASA volunteers are from varied backgrounds – retired and working; full-time parents and grandparents; law and graduate students and various professionals. They all investigate cases, get to know the children, meet with the involved professionals and make recommendations that are in the children’s best interest to the court.

CASA works each and every day to ensure that abused and neglected children’s voices are heard loud and clear. Our child clients are in need of a volunteer advocate to closely monitor their cases. Since 1999, CASA of Allegheny County has had a constant list of children waiting for an advocate to be a powerful voice in their lives. Now is a wonderful time to get involved. For more info, e-mail us or call 412-594-3606.
