Advocacy Resources 

With the unpredictable COVID-19 pandemic increasing by the day, children and families are struggling. Your role as a CASA volunteer is still important to the families you work with! CASA volunteers can be strong supports for children and families at this time while following the social distancing recommendations from the CDC and the state of Wisconsin. 

Zoom Etiquette and How-To-Use

As we continue to have meetings and hearings using Zoom or other virtual platforms due to Covid-19, we have developed a list of guidelines and reminders for you to help keep our meetings professional.

Please read the full Virtual Meeting Etiquette PDF.

 

All Volunteer Training Classes for the foreseeable future will be held over Zoom.

Ways to Stay in Contact 

Click here to see our most recent COVID-19 and Visitation Policies for Advocates

  1. Phone Calls: Keep in contact with everyone involved in your families case with a regular phone call.

  2. FaceTime: You can use it from any iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Mac, to call anyone else  who is also using any one of those devices.

  3. Google Duo: Can be downloaded on any mobile device for free. Once downloaded it works just as FaceTime would for Apple users. Both participants on the call must have the app downloaded.

  4. Skype: This is also free to download and works on all phones, tablets and computers with webcams. All the participants in the call must have a Skype account and share their username with you to be able to call them.

*All of these options can have multiple participants on one call for group conferencing!
