National Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Association

Final

Become a CASA volunteer if you are ready to make a difference in a child's life.

CASA volunteers are everyday citizens appointed by judges to advocate for the safety and well-being of children who have been removed from their homes due to parental abuse or neglect. They stand up for these children, represent their best interests in courtrooms and other settings and help change their lives. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives.

There are more than 1,000 CASA and guardian ad litem(GAL) programs changing the lives of children throughout the country. Becoming a volunteer advocate is one of many ways that you can help. Many CASA and guardian ad litem programs offer additional volunteer opportunities.

Mission Statement

The mission of the National Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Association, together with its state and local members, is to support and promote court-appointed volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children so that they can thrive in safe, permanent homes.

Description

The National CASA Association is a network of 1,000 program offices that are recruiting, training and supporting volunteers to represent the best interests of abused and neglected children in the courtroom and other settings. CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don't get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives. Independent research has demonstrated that children with a CASA volunteer are substantially less likely to spend time in long-term foster care and less likely to reenter care. Our vision to provide a volunteer for each and every abused and neglected child who needs one.
