CASA Volunteers are everyday citizens who are trained to represent the best interest of abused and neglected children in the courtroom and other settings.

Appointed by the 6th Judicial Circuit Court, CASA's watch over and advocate for children within the court system, to make sure they don't get lost in the overburdened legal and social service structures or languish in inappropriate home settings. Through weekly contact with the child and communication with the adults involved in the child's life, CASA's asses the child's needs, look for resources to address those needs and make recommendations to the court through their findings.

The CASA advocate provides a consistent voice for the child during Court involvement and a constant, reliable presence to the child at this time in their life.
