Fairfax CASA

Fairfax CASA utilizes volunteers to work with abused and neglected children that have been referred by the Fairfax County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.  Currently, they are receiving referrals once every 30 hours. Fairfax CASA currently provides pre-service and in-service training for our volunteers, while providing them with a supervisor who is knowledgeable and can give them one-on-one support in regard to each individual case. Our staff provides the volunteers with moral support, communication of updates and legal advice which helps them determine what is best for the child they represent. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Darcy Cunningham at (703) 273- 3526, ext. 11 or executivedirector@casafairfax.org.
