I have been volunteering with Henrico CASA for about 4 years now. Working so closely with a nonprofit has provided me the pleasure of both understanding and observing how invaluable the services are that CASA provides. Being a voice for a vunerable child can change the course of a life. CASA is not just a nonprofit, CASA is a life changer, and that is because of the amazing men and women that are behind the lines volunteering and encouraging and guiding volunteers. Today I am giving CASA 5 stars, because I know if I were a child in need, CASA would be there to advocate for me! I highly recommend this oranization both to work with, to vounteer with , and to support! Thank you CASA for all that you do and all that you are!

I've been a CASA in both Richmond City and now Henrico. The paid staff are smart and helpful and supportive, and the other volunteers are the kind of folks you'd like to spend time with even if you weren't working with them in Henrico CASA. The training is well organized and carefully aimed at the real issues new volunteers will be dealing with. As a CASA, will you solve all the world's problems forever? No. Will you make a real difference for kids who otherwise would not have a person whose only focus is on trying to figure out what's best for them? Yes. Will people in authority -- judges, social workers, teachers -- respect what you do and pay real attention to your recommendations? Definitely. Will you make a real difference? Yes, you will.
