COURT APPOINTED SPECIAL ADVOCATES (CASA)
Court Appointed Special Advocates recruit, train and support citizen-volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the courtroom and the community. Volunteer advocates—empowered directly by the courts—offer judges the critical information they need to ensure that each child’s rights and needs are being attended to while in foster care. Volunteers stay with children until they are placed in loving permanent homes. For many abused children, a CASA volunteer is the only constant adult presence in their lives.
