Court-Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Program
Formerly known as the Volunteer Guardian Ad Litem Program, the CASA Program is comprised of trained volunteers who are appointed by the court to represent the best interests of a child in a child abuse or neglect case in and out of court. CASA volunteers must be at least 21 years old and able to spend between 4 and 25 hours a month – serve as fact-finders, advocates, and monitors for children in need. The Judiciary provides free training and staff support for all volunteers. If you are interested in becoming a CASA volunteer, on O`ahu call (808) 954-8124.
