Steps to becoming a Dallas CASA volunteer advocate
Step one: Attend an information session
Dallas CASA information sessions describe the volunteer program and the process to become a volunteer advocate. You will learn more about the agency, the volunteer role and the training program.
Our offices will be closed during the COVID19 Dallas County Shelter-In-Place order.
Sadly however, we know that in times of heightened stress on families, children may suffer most. Doctors at Cook Children’s Hospital reported an increase in severe child abuse cases admitted to the hospital just last week, and the trend is expected to continue at area hospitals due to the resulting stress from issues related to the coronavirus pandemic. Perhaps more than ever, it is critical that we continue to prepare CASA advocates to serve the best interests of the children in our community.
We invite you to attend a volunteer information session which will be conducted via Zoom until our offices reopen. You will be sent instructions and a link to participate when your registration is received. Thank you for your interest in learning how you can serve abused and neglected children.
Upcoming information sessions:
Thursday, May 21, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Friday, May 29, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m.
Thursday, June 4, 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.
