The Training Spot – CASA Helping Hearts
Additional CASA Volunteer Opportunities
CASA Helping Hearts Program
Does your spouse or friend want to get involved in CASA Child Advocates but they aren’t quite ready to become an Advocate? There are plenty of additional CASA volunteer opportunities besides advocacy. One possibility to consider would be joining our “Helping Hearts” program.
What is a Helping Heart?
Helping Hearts are volunteers who accompany CASA Advocates to visits. They are there to provide support to the Advocate and the children in the case. They do not write court reports, testify or do visits alone.
When can Helping Hearts get involved?
Helping Hearts can join an Advocate on a case after the Advocate has had the case for 3 months.
How do I become a Helping Heart?
Complete a Helping Heart application and complete fingerprinting. Once that is approved, contact Ann Marie Ronsman to schedule the two-hour training in our office.
You are needed! Your time and skills are just what CASA needs to help even more children. If you have other skills to offer, please let us know. Volunteering for CASA is rewarding and makes a difference.
