About

CASA of Campbell County provides quality court-based advocacy for abused and neglected children. Children are referred to our program by Campbell County Juvenile Judge, Honorable Amanda Sammons.

CASA advocates are matched to a case where their skills and training will benefit the children most. CASA advocates work to get their child’s court case expedited in addition to helping the child they’re working with find permanency sooner. Advocates insure the child is receiving the necessary medical, psychological, and educational services that they need.

Every year in the United States, over 270,000 children are removed from their homes and placed with relatives or in foster care because they cannot live safely with their parents. Their future path in life will eventually be decided in court. Will a child be returned to his or her parents, remain with relatives, stay in foster care or become available for adoption?

Today, to help judges make these types of difficult decisions, there are more than 900 Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) programs throughout the nation. Volunteer advocates with these programs champion the best interest of children so that they can have a chance to thrive.
