Court Appointed Special Advocate
with Judicial Center Staff
Interested in speaking up for a Maine foster child? Attend this session to learn more about being a Maine Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). CASAs are community volunteers appointed to serve as guardians ad litem for children whose parents are involved in a child protection case. The foundation of a CASA’s work is to investigate the case and then advise the judge on the child’s best interest. These volunteers come from a wide variety of professional and personal backgrounds and are guided throughout the process by staff attorneys. Right now, there are more foster children than CASAs. If you have a big heart and are willing to speak up for a Maine child, we invite you to attend this informational session to learn more. You must be 21 years of age, have a high school diploma or GED equivalent, and attend our comprehensive training.
Kaela Jalbert, Darren Defoe, and Erin Swanson oversee the Maine CASA Program from the Capital Judicial Center in Augusta. They work closely with CASA volunteers to provide guidance and feedback throughout all stages of a child protection case.
