The Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is appointed by a judge to serve as an advocate for the best interests of a child who is the subject of a dependency proceeding in Superior Court. The primary duties of the CASA are to learn about the child, engage with the child, collaborate with others involved, and make recommendations to the court regarding the child's placement, needed services, and overall best interests.

All necessary training and support is provided by professional staff. People from all cultures, professions, ethnic and educational backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Mission Statement

To recruit, train and support quality volunteer advocates for the best interests of abused, neglected and abandoned children.

Description

Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing 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, loving home where he/she can thrive. It is the CASA vision to provide a volunteer for each and every abused and neglected child who needs one.
