Registration is open for our Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Volunteer Training Program, which begins October 3, 2019.

CASA volunteers serve as the voice of children who are in foster care or involved in the family court system. They meet regularly with the child and speak on behalf of the child during critical meetings and legal hearings. A CASA representative often is the only consistent adult in a child’s life.

Our CASA training program concludes with an official swearing-in ceremony by a Livingston County Family Court judge. This specialized training is held just twice a year.
