court appointed special advocates
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is a program of trained, dedicated volunteers assigned by Family Court judges to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children. CASA volunteers are an independent voice. Their mission is to make sure that the child’s needs are met and that they don’t fall through the cracks.
CASA volunteers come from all walks of life. They are ordinary citizens with an extraordinary commitment to helping children reach their full potential in a permanent, safe home.
CASA believes every child deserves to have the opportunity to thrive and reach their full potential.
