August 2015 Volunteer of the Month
Cody Grosshart

When children are removed from their homes to be protected from abuse or neglect, they often find themselves in new places with unfamiliar faces. As we approach the fall season, we are reminded that life is always changing. Some changes can be difficult – especially the changes experienced by children in foster care.

Capital Area CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) Association recruits, trains and supervises community volunteers who serve as advocates for these children. You can help bring about positive change for a child by becoming a CASA volunteer. CASA volunteers do not provide legal representation, nor do they replace social workers. A CASA volunteer is an independent voice speaking solely for the child's best interests with the ultimate goal being a safe, permanent home.

No special background is required to become a CASA. Attend a 45-minute informational session to take the first step. Click here for upcoming orientation dates, or contact us at or (225) 379-8598.
