CASA volunteers are supported by a volunteer peer mentor, who is an experienced CASA volunteer. The peer mentor serves as a coach for the newly trained volunteers. Each volunteer is also assigned to a CASA Program Supervisor, who is available to answer any questions and provide additional guidance, support and supervision. Most importantly, CASA volunteers have the support of each other.
National studies have shown that a child who has been assigned a CASA volunteer spends less time in court and less time in foster care than those who do not have CASA volunteer representation. We want to be able to provide a CASA volunteer to every abused/neglected child who is under the jurisdiction of the Eighth Judicial District Court’s Dependency system of Clark County Nevada.
