CASA is looking for volunteer advocates to answer the call and speak up for an abused and/or neglected child. There is a critical shortage of volunteers to serve the nearly 1,800 children involved with the child welfare system in Peoria, Tazewell, Marshall, Putnam and Stark counties. After completion of a pre-service training, volunteers need only commit to a minimum of 5 hours a month on their own schedule. CASA volunteers are officers of the court and monitor the progress of a child’s case by speaking up for the best interests of the child.
