"Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much." - Helen Keller
Every day in this country, 1,900 children become victims of abuse or neglect, and four of them will die. Every day! Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children is a non-profit agency that recruits, trains, and supports citizen-volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in courtrooms and communities. Volunteer advocates - empowered directly by the courts - offer judges the critical information they need to ensure that each child's rights and needs are being attended to while in foster care.
Volunteers stay with children until they are placed in loving permanent homes. For many abused children, a CASA volunteer is the only constant adult presence in their lives.
With our current Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers currently serving cases, CASA for Children is urgently seeking new volunteers.

We believe that every child deserves a safe, nurturing and permanent home. We strive to accomplish this goal through advocacy and education. The CASA program recruits, screens, trains and supports community volunteers to work with abused and/or neglected children in the juvenile court system.
CASA for Children covers three counties in northeastern Oklahoma. Wagoner, Sequoyah, and Muskogee Counties. All of our counties are considered to be rural. In 2014, CASA for Children was able to serve 236 children throughout the three counties. We are urgently seeking volunteers to advocate for the many children that we were unable to serve!
