To recruit and train volunteers from the community to represent the best interests of children in the court system due to abuse or neglect.
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) volunteers are trained in various aspects of MS youth court law, the foster care system, and the dynamics of child abuse and neglect. The role of the volunteer is to serve as an independent investigator for the youth court judge, to try and get the system to work for the child by ensuring ordered services are provided, making written recommendations as to the child's best interest to the judge, with the primary goal of moving the child through the court system into a safe, permanent home.
