There are no fees or dues. To join Friends of CASA, Just contact the CASA office at (804) 462-0881 and ask to speak with the Friends of CASA liaison. Your name and contact information will be added to the network list. When help with a specific task is needed, the CASA office will make a request for assistance by broadcast e-mail or telephone. If you have the time and interest to help with the project call the office for details.
Friends of CASA members who have the time and interest may want to help CASA by applying for one or more of the formal CASA roles such as becoming a Court Appointed Special Advocate or service as a member of the CASA Board of Directors.
Friends of CASA will also receive updates on the status of CASA activities. It is our hope the Friends of CASA organization will be informal "ambassadors" to the community who can help increase public awareness of the organization and its mission
