Lift up a child's voice. A child's life. CASAs, or Court Appointed Special Advocates, are volunteers who are appointed by a Judge to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the court system. They serve as the eyes and ears of the Judge, gathering information and reporting that information back to the Judge as well as making recommendations. Their focus is to ensure safety, permanency and stability of these children.
