SCAN’s Alexandria/Arlington CASA Program
The Alexandria/Arlington Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program provides trained volunteers appointed by the court to serve as a direct voice for children in the juvenile court system.
> About the CASA Program
SCAN's Alexandria/Arlington CASA Program helps hundreds of abused and neglected children have a voice within the court system every year.
> CASA Volunteers
CASA volunteers advocate for children in abuse and neglect cases, custody cases, and cases where a child is in need of services. Volunteers conduct interviews with the children, families, and professionals involved in the case, monitor compliance with the Court orders, and attend Court hearings where they represent the best interest of the child.

> Multicultural Volunteer Recruitment
The Alexandria/Arlington CASA Program is in need of Bilingual Hispanic Volunteers and African American Volunteers to advocate on behalf of Hispanic and African American children who are caught up in the complex court system.
> Male Volunteer Recruitment
The Alexandria/Arlington CASA Program is in need of Male Volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children in the court system. As these children make their way through the court system, some without fathers involved, male CASA volunteers can be valuable role models. When fathers are involved, male volunteers can be role models for them as well, providing encouragement to comply with the courts and helping them find and connect with resources.
