Everyday heroes for children in need.
One of the most unique things about CASA is that we use volunteers in nearly every aspect of the agency’s work. Volunteers are at the heart of our organization – we simply could not do what we do without them. From a one-time volunteer experience to the one-year commitment of working a case as a volunteer advocate, there are so many ways to make a difference in the lives of the abused and neglected children we serve. Whatever your skill set may be and whatever time you may have to give, we have a role at CASA that you can fill.
VOLUNTEER COURT ADVOCATE
A trained member of the community, appointed by a district judge, to represent children in court. Advocates are 100% community volunteers.
CHAMPIONS FOR CASA
Champions for CASA is a volunteer auxiliary group that promotes the quality, sustainability, and growth of CASA of Denton County.
Board of Directors
A group of individuals who are responsible for the overall management of the organization, providing leadership and support.
A group of individuals who serve on subcommittees of the board, helping in the areas of finance, fund raising, public awareness, personnel, and long range planning. These individuals have expressed an interest in helping CASA, but typically do not have time to serve on the Board of Directors or as court advocates.
Special Events Volunteer
CASA regularly utilizes community and university volunteers, youth groups, and others at special events throughout the year. Click here for a calendar of CASA events.
The CASA office periodically hires student interns for a semester or summer session to assist with various administrative and other tasks. Currently we do not have any openings for spring 2019.
Interns must be enrolled in a local university and studying social work or another topic relevant to the mission of CASA of Denton County. For more information, contact Cheri Fry, CASA Program Director, at 940.243.2272.
