CASA volunteers work one-on-one with an abused or neglected child, advocating for his or her best interests. CASA volunteers don’t require any specific education. All they need is compassion, objectivity, and a commitment to children. Anyone interested in becoming a CASA Volunteer should visit http://center-for-children.org/programs/court-appointed-special-advocate-casa/ for more information, or reach out to the CASA of Southern Maryland casa@center-for-children.org or call NaQuita Coates, Training and Recruitment Specialist, at 410-535-3047.
