Every child deserves a safe and loving family

As a CASA volunteer, you are empowered by the courts to help make this a reality for children who are dependent, neglected, and abused. You will not only bring positive change to the lives of these vulnerable children, but also their children and generations to come. And in doing so, you will enrich your life as well.

Everything is Possible When Someone Cares

The first step on your journey to becoming a Court Appointed Special Advocate is to apply. Download our CASA application by clicking HERE

Download the ODFJS Central Registry Request. You need to fill out this form to request ODFJS to check your name against "Central Registry", a database that looks for any referrals or complaints about child abuse and neglect. Once you receive these results, please give them to the CASA office.  You cannot be Sworn In as a CASA volunteer until these results are obtained. Because this process can take 6 weeks to process, please fill out this form ASAP.
