ORGANIZATION: North Iowa CASA Program

CASAs amplify the voices of children who have been judged as "children in need of assistance" by the state. You'll learn your role through comprehensive training, and then you'll be assigned your own case. A coach and a CASA coordinator will be there to support you along the way as you advocate in court for your assigned children.
