Thank you for your inquiry into our program.

Orientations are conducted the first Wednesday of every month; one from 12:00 – 1:00 pm & the other from 6:00 – 7:00 pm. Please call or e-mail if you are interested in attending an orientation, as our space is limited, and on occasion, times and dates may change. You may contact our office at 707-421-2272 or e-mail us at Samantha Marvin (smarvin@casasolano.org)  When we hear from you, we will e-mail you an informational packet.

Orientation is considered the first step to becoming an CASA Volunteer Advocate. The Orientation session takes no more than an hour & gives you a more detailed insight into what becoming and being an CASA Volunteer Advocate will entail. We prefer all candidates complete an Orientation session before filling out our Application & making a commitment to going forward with Training.”

As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by Judges to be a voice for abused and neglected children in court. The result is children are placed into safe, loving homes where they can thrive.

CASA volunteers are ordinary people who are committed to doing what is best for a child. As a CASA volunteer, you will be able to work with confidence. All our volunteers are thoroughly trained in courtroom procedure, social services, the Juvenile Justice system, and the special needs of abused and neglected children. We welcome volunteers from all cultures, professions, and ethnic and educational backgrounds.
