The forms and tools below will help you prepare for your case, stay organized as you go along and keep track of what occurs. Staying organized will help you ensure that your CASA child is receiving all necessary services and that you are able to provide the court with the most accurate and up-to-date information.
Maryland CASA’s on-demand training platform greatly enhances the availability of training for CASA volunteers and staff across the state. Certificates are automatically awarded upon completion of the course and a post-course assessment.
There are now eight (8) courses available – Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s), LGBTQ Youth in Foster Care, Pursuing Higher Education for Youth in Foster Care, Human Trafficking, PTSD and Foster Youth, The Impact of Parental Opioid Abuse on Children, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD), and Foster Youth in the Juvenile Justice System (i.e. crossover youth). Maryland CASA will be adding a new course every other month, which will be announced via email. Use code MDCASA to sign up.

Change a Child’s Story
Children in foster care who have aCASA volunteer are more likely to succeed in school and adjust to change. And they’re half as likely to re-enter the foster care system later. By getting involved with CASA, you can make all the difference for a child who has experienced abuse or neglect in you community. Get involved, and change a child’s story.
