Pinal County is seeking volunteers for its Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program, which supports children in foster care or Child Protective Services custody.
“We are a government program so we do not fundraise, we are truly a non-profit organization,” said Pam Burke, Pinal County CASA coordinator said in a news release. “Our volunteers are specially trained, fingerprinted, interviewed, references are checked and they are given a polygraph. After that, they are given 30 hours of training and then they can be classified as a CASA volunteer.”
CASA volunteers serve as resources for kids, helping them deal with issues such as unstable living situations and court appearances.
The organization has 60 volunteers who serve as many as 100 children. Volunteers must be at least 21 years old.
