Mission Statement

Court Appointed Specials Advocates (CASA) of Mercer County is an independent, non-profit organization committted to speaking up for the best interests of abused and neglected children. CASA works through trained community volunteers to insure that needed services and assistance are made available while helping to move the children toward safe and permanent homes.

Description

A CASA volunteer is assigned to an abuse or neglect case by a judge. After conducting a thorough investigation of the case and interviewing those involved, he/she reports this information to the Court and makes recommendations about what he/she believes is best for the child. CASA volunteers come from all walks of life, all kinds of educational, ethnic, and social backgrounds. Many work full time and no prior experience is necessary. On average a CASA volunteer devotes 5 to 15 hours a month to a case. After volunteers complete the training program they are sworn-in by the family court judge.
