Volunteer - Philadelphia | More about Volunteering

There are over 4,200 foster children in Philadelphia. CASA volunteers visit children regularly, contact caseworkers, interview parents, doctors, teachers and therapists. They review records, report to the court and testify - all to ensure necessary safety, care and most importantly permanence for the children.
