The Advo-Kids CASA mission is to provide screened, trained and supervised community volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children involved in juvenile court deprivation proceedings. Advo-Kids CASA is a member of the National Court Appointed Special Advocates

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is a trained community volunteer who is appointed by a judge to advocate for the best interests of an abused or neglected child in juvenile court proceedings.

The CASA gathers information about the child's situation, attends court proceedings, and submits a report to the court. Recommendations are included in the report so the judge has the information needed to make a decision about the child's future. The CASA volunteer advocates for the child to be placed in a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.

As a CASA volunteer, you will ultimately help to change a child's life for a brighter future; you can help to end the cycle of abuse and neglect. Among many other benefits, you will have an opportunity to learn about the juvenile court system and become actively involved in your community.
