CASA/Prince George's County Volunteer Program

Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA)/Prince George's County recruits and trains volunteers aged 21 and older to advocate for the needs of children living in foster care. Volunteers spend about 12 hours per month visiting with a child and collaborating with other adults who are protecting the child to ensure his or her needs are met and a safe permanent home is found.

CASA/Prince George's County is hosting an information session regarding their volunteer program on March 6, 2013 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm at the Local 400 Union Hall located at 4301 Garden City Dr., Landover, MD, 20785.
