Thanks to growing community support, we have spent the past few years strengthening our Volunteer Recruitment Team as we work to meet our vision of providing a CASA volunteer for every child in Austin who needs one. We are seeing results!

In 2013, the average number of volunteer applications we received each month grew by 27% from 2012. We saw a 33% increase from 2012 in the number of volunteers who completed training!
