CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates)
CASA recruits, trains and supports community volunteers who advocate on behalf of abused and neglected children in our community. CASA volunteers build a relationships with the children they advocate for, by meeting regularly with them. As they get to know their CASA children, they make observations, and write reports directly to the judge with recommendations for what’s in the child’s best interests.
CASA volunteers get cases moving through the child welfare system and advocate strongly to help ensure each child is in a secure, safe home. Our program succeeds with help from dedicated staff, caring volunteers and generous donors like you.
