Super Hero Volunteers Needed!

If you’ve always wanted to volunteer and be a super hero and help children…here’s your chance! Your cape will be invisible to most people but the children you help will know you’re wearing one. Besides…real ones can get caught in stuff.

Volunteers Needed

There are abused and neglected children in the Adams County Court system waiting for a CASA volunteer.

CASA volunteers are trained community volunteers appointed by a judge to speak up for abused or neglected children in the court system. Volunteers receive 30 hours of training prior to case assignment. Training includes courtroom procedures, working with social service agencies and the special needs of abused and neglected children. Training is free with training manuals and materials provided. Once trained, CASA volunteers work alongside attorneys and social workers from case inception to its completion. Get the training schedule by clicking here – 2018 CASA TRAINING SCHEDULE- Adams 07.17.18

CASA volunteers come from all walks of life and no special experience is required. These trained volunteers will represent abused and neglected children in the Adams County court system.

All trainings will be held at the CASA office at 1420 Harrison Street Quincy, IL 62301.
