Elders Encouraged to Volunteer with a purpose — become a CASA volunteer!


A new case of child abuse or neglect enters the Fairfax County

Domestic & Juvenile Relations Court system once every 38 hours. These children need caring advocates to help ensure that they grow up in safe and permanent homes.

Fairfax Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) trains citizen volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children who are under the protection of the court system. All CASA volunteers undergo extensive training; no prior experience in child welfare or the law is required.

CASA volunteering is a great fit for retirees, who bring the skills and the experience needed to build rapport with professionals, and to advocate forcefully for the needs of a child.>
