Imagine what it would be like to lose your parents, not because of something you did, but because they can’t - or won’t - take care of you. Suddenly you are bombarded by dozens of strangers: police, foster parents, social workers, judges, lawyers, and more. Having a CASA volunteer means having by your side a trained and committed adult who has been appointed by a judge to watch over and advocate for your best interests. That volunteer will make sure you don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in an inappropriate group or foster home. They will be there for you until your case is closed. It can make the difference between homelessness and a safe home, between dropping out and completing school, between unemployment and success, between jail and becoming a productive member of society.

CASA volunteers are the only volunteers that are appointed by a judge and empowered to stand up for an abused or neglected child in court. We invite you to learn more about becoming a CASA volunteer by contacting the CASA program in Lancaster County. We hope you decide to join our family of 70,000 volunteers, everyday people, who are committed to improving children’s lives.
