Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Brown County is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization that provides a voice for abused and neglected children who are under the legal protection of the court system.

We recruit, train and support community volunteers to advocate on behalf of children under court protection until they are safe and thriving in permanent homes.

CASA volunteers visit the child regularly and submit a monthly report to the judge on the child's safety and well-being to help the judge make important decisions on the child's future. Every CASA works closely with an Advocate Supervisor, on the CASA staff, who provides support and guidance throughout the court process and child's journey.

Many of the children we serve are in foster care and their CASA volunteer is the only consistent adult presence in their life.

A child with a CASA volunteer is more likely to get help with other services, spend less time in foster care and report higher levels of hope!

If you are 21 years of age and have the heart to help the most vulnerable children in Brown County, please contact Eileen Metzler, Volunteer Recruitment Coordinator at (920) 393-9771 or eileen@casabc.org.

Mission Statement

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Brown County is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization that provides a voice for abused and neglected children who are under the legal protection of the court system.

Description

Every year more than half a million children who have experienced abuse or neglect are in need of safe, permanent homes. That's where CASA steps in. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) was created in 1977 to make sure the abuse and neglect these children originally suffered at home doesn't continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the system. As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court. The result is that a child is placed into a safe home where he/she can thrive. It is the CASA vision to provide a volunteer for each and every child who has experienced abuse or neglect.
