10/27/2020 to 10/27/2020

4103 CHAIN BRIDGE RD., SUITE 200, FAIRFAX, VA 22030

Children in foster care who have a CASA volunteer are more likely to succeed in school and adjust to change. And they’re half as likely to re-enter the foster care system later. As a volunteer, you can make a difference for a child who has experienced abuse or neglect in Fairfax County. Get involved, and change a child’s story. The first step to becoming a CASA volunteer is to attend an information session. Currently, our information sessions are being held virtually via Zoom in order to maintain everyone's safety and health. Please RSVP by emailing volunteer@casafairfax.org to reserve your spot and obtain the meeting link.
