Resources for CASA Volunteers
**NOTICE - Updated National CASA Volunteer Standards**
The National CASA Association (NCASAA) recently revised their volunteer management standards. As a program in good standing with NCASAA, we adhere to these standards. Beginning July 1, 2010, we are now required to repeat the record check on volunteers every 4 years. This record check includes: national criminal records (local and state), national sex offender registry, driver’s license verification and motor vehicle record. For many of you, this means you will need to fill out and sign a new consent form in order for these checks to be completed. You will be notified if you need to fill out a new form.
Another NCASAA standard requires a volunteer to provide annually a copy of their valid current driver’s license and adequate personal automobile insurance. We will now require volunteers to submit a copy of their driver’s license and proof of auto insurance every year.
NOTE: Anyone with two or more moving violations in one year will not be permitted to transport children.
Thank you for your cooperation with these new standards. We continually strive to minimize risks while maintaining quality service.
If there are any questions, concerns or comments about the new standards please contact

Religious and Neighborhood Groups
Many churches, synagogues and neighborhood associations have social action or community outreach programs that offer opportunities for volunteer recruitment and financial support for local nonprofit organizations. They prefer to support organizations who have some of their members engaged with the nonprofit as volunteers. Their applications often ask us to list any of our volunteers who are members of their organization. However, we usually have no way of knowing this information since we do not capture it on our volunteer application.
If you are a member of a church, synagogue and/or neighborhood association, please let us know by
e-mailing Ally Vertigan
Thank you for the many ways you help CASA!!
