About

Dougherty CASA is a division of the Lily Pad SANE Center, Inc.

Dougherty CASA a division of the Lily Pad SANE Center, Inc is a non-profit organization that serves children in the foster care system. A CASA is a trained community volunteer appointed by a judge to speak up for the best interests of an abused, neglected, or abandoned child involved in a juvenile court deprivation proceeding. As a CASA ensuring that no child is lost in the system is a top priority. Bringing urgency to a child’s needs, both in and out of a courtroom, CASA volunteers advocate for safety, permanence and well-being for children through independent recommendations. 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.
