IN IOWA, OVER 4000 ABUSED AND NEGLECTED CHILDREN NEED A VOICE!
As aCourt Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Volunteeryou will become a voice for an abused and neglected child, who through no fault of their own, find themselves involved in the juvenile justice and child welfare systems.
Get to know a child, find out what their lives are like, what their needs are, who cares about them and for them, and then report your findings so that the Juvenile Court can make the best possible decisons for each child. Every child deserves a safe, permanent home where they can live and thrive. Please help ensure this happens for each one.
Make an impact in a child's life, in your community and in your own life, by volunteering as a CASA.Training and support staff is provided. Approx. 5-10 hours/month.

The mission: The Iowa Child Advocacy Board responsible for the CASA Program commisions community volunteers to serve as an effective voice in court for abused and neglected children, strengthening efforts to ensure that every child lives in a safe, permanent and nurturing home.
CASA Volunteers are making a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children who, through no fault of their own, find themselves in the Juvenile Court and Child Welfare Systems. CASAs do independent investigations, monitor what the children's needs are, report to the court, and take the time to know the child. Our trained volunteers are committed individuals who stand up for children who cannot speak for themselves.
We serve Woodbury, Plymouth, Lyon, Sioux and Monona counties in Iowa.
