Did you know that as of November 2020, 47 of the 72 CASA programs have a service area of three or more counties? This poses opportunities and challenges for CASA programs as they strive to establish a presence in all communities, recruit and retain volunteers from all counties served, and serve the children who are in CPS custody within their entire service area.
A workgroup of CASA programs met remotely in Summer 2020 to discuss their barriers and solutions for volunteer recruitment, training and management in outer counties. As a result, we are sharing with you resources in these areas that we hope will prove beneficial to your program.
