The Office of the Child Advocate- Court Appointed Special Advocate Program (CASA) of Delaware is expanding its efforts to represent the interests of abused and neglected children. The program is seeking qualified adults to serve as CASA volunteers.

CASA volunteers are trained members of the community who are appointed by a Family Court Judge to be a voice for Delaware’s abused and neglected children in court proceedings.  The CASA volunteer conducts an independent investigation into the child’s life and provides information and recommendations to the Judge.  CASA volunteers work with attorneys, social workers, and family members to attain a safe and permanent home for each child.

CASA volunteers have varied professional, educational and ethnic backgrounds.  They are selected on the basis of their objectivity, competence and commitment. Each volunteer accepted into the program must complete 30 hours of initial training. Casework supervision is provided by full time Program Coordinators.
