Speak Up for a Child – Voices for Children/CASA

Speak Up for a Child
Voices for Children/CASA volunteers speak for children who are in the court system. Their role is vital to the future of foster children in our community. They investigate cases, facilitate the delivery of services to the child and family, advocate on behalf of the child to the Court, and monitor the progression of the case until it is resolved. Our volunteers work with a team of professionals to expedite a safe, permanent placement for each child, and to ensure that the system fulfills its responsibilities to each child.
With the assistance of a trained CASA volunteer, each child spends an average of a year less in the system. Our program provides trained community volunteers who are willing to invest time to make a difference in a child’s life.
To learn more about becoming a CASA volunteer, visit www.voicesforchildrensemo.org or call 573-335-1726.
