  • CASA AdvocatesWe need some special people who are willing to take on an important role for abused children. Caring, committed adults who are willing to speak up for a child as they go through the court system are needed now for CASA.  New volunteer training is generally scheduled twice a year. Training sessions are held in the fall and spring in the evenings from 5:30 – 9:30 pm.  Participants will gain knowledge and learn skills needed to become an advocate for an abused child in foster care.  Participants who successfully complete the training will be sworn in as Court Appointed Special Advocates/ Guardian ad Litems in the 336th District Courtroom.  Applications, background checks and personal interviews must be completed before the training begins.
  • Office Support – Volunteers are sometimes needed to help greet visitors to the center, answer phones, make copies, assemble the newsletter, clean the center and other office duties.
  • Rainbow Room – Volunteers are needed a couple times a month to sort donations and organize the clothing, shoes, diapers and other items in our Rainbow Room.
  • Special Events – Throughout the year, we have several special events, including Justice Is Served,  School Supply Drive, Christmas Drive.  Quite frankly, we could not pull off these events without the assistance of volunteers who help with event set-up, decorating and clean-up, organizing and preparing school supplies, wrapping Christmas presents and more.
  • Child Care – Volunteers are needed to provide child care while parents are attending classes or groups on-site.
