Become a CASA Volunteer
Amarillo Area CASA advocates for children of abuse and neglect through the efforts of trained volunteers, appointed by the court to ensure them a safe, nurturing and permanent environment.
CASA believes that every child who has been abused or neglected deserves to have a dedicated advocate speaking up for their best interest in court, at school and in our community. As the state steps in to protect the welfare of the child, the judge appoints a CASA volunteer to make independent, unbiased, and informed recommendations to help the judge decide the best interest of the child.

What does a CASA Volunteer Do?
When a family is in crisis and becomes involved in the child welfare system, a Court Appointed Advocate (CASA) volunteer may be appointed by a judge to advocate for the child.
This highly trained volunteer is someone from the child’s community whose responsibility is to get to know the child and their family and advocate for their safety, permanency and well-being while in foster care. This is just one example of the difference a CASA volunteer can make in a child’s life.
