Our Staff


CASA Lake County's staff performs two primary and essential functions for our volunteer-based program.


1. Advocate Supervision

CASA Lake County's Advocate Managers serve as the support system for each and every one of our nearly 300 volunteer child advocates. Advocate Managers are there to enhance the passion and devotion of our volunteers with guidance, experience, and a familiarity with the court system. Each Advocate Manager provides supervision for roughly 30 volunteers, who can advocate on behalf of 45-80 children at any given time.

2. Advocate Education

CASA Lake County's Manager of Advocate Education and Manager of Advocate Engagement work to ensure that every volunteer receives the thorough, comprehensive training that they need to be an effective advocate for a child. Every new volunteer receives 30 hours of initial training before being sworn in, and each active volunteer attends 12 hours of continuing education each year to keep their training up to date with current information, methods, and standards.
