CASA Volunteer Training Begins in February


NOTICE: Our Winter CASA training session is full. We look forward to meeting our new volunteers!

Volunteers who become Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) serve as the voice of children who are in foster care or involved in the family court system. These are children from Livingston County who cannot return home because it is not safe. As a CASA Advocate, you may be the only consistent adult in a child’s life.

Our CASA Volunteer Training Series begins in February. The training involves both classroom sessions and online units.
