About

CASA volunteers are trained community members who recommend to the Court, based on facts and information gathered, the needs of a child who has been adjudicated abused and/or neglected. The CASA will monitor the case and work to assure permanency planning so that each child can fulfill his/her right to a safe, permanent home.

By donating any amount in your heart, or volunteering your time to your local CASA program. The average length of stay in the foster care system is two years, full of constant chaos and movement.
