About

Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers are trained citizens from all walks of life who are assigned by the juvenile court to advocate for the best interests of an abused or neglected child in court. Children helped by CASA volunteers include those who are in the legal custody of the state (foster care).

A CASA volunteer provides a judge with carefully researched background details about the child to help the court make a sound decision about that child's future. CASA Volunteers work closely with Youth Service Bureau CASA Program staff, who provide training, guidance and supervision. There is no cost to be a CASA Volunteer.
