About

Children ages 0-3 who experience abuse and neglect may have delayed developmental growth and struggle with building healthy attachments during a time in their life when they are supposed to be thriving. These children need a voice in court advocating for their needs. Be that voice.

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is an everyday citizen appointed by a judge to advocate for the safety and well-being of children who have been removed from their homes. No prior experience is necessary. We provide all the training you’ll need, along with a team to support you on your case. Your role will be to gather information from reports, social workers, doctors, family members and other professionals in the child's life. With the information you collect, you’ll represent the child’s best interest in court. A child with a CASA is more likely to receive targeted services and spend less time in out of home care.
