"The constant thought that runs through my head is that, although we can’t change a child’s past, we can change their future. We can show them that adults can be trusted and remind them that they aren’t to blame for what happened to them. And we can teach them that someone cares about each of them."

~ Sandra S, Dallas CASA volunteer since 2002

Become a Volunteer Advocate

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 for group gatherings in order to follow safety protocols during the COVID19 outbreak.

Sadly however, we know that in times of heightened stress on families, children may suffer most. Doctors at area hospitals have reported an increase in severe child abuse cases admitted to the hospital, and the trend is expected to continue 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, July 2, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.

Friday, July 10, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m.

Friday, July 17, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m.

Thursday, July 30, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
