A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is a trained community volunteer who is appointed by a judge to advocate for the best interest of an abused or neglected child in juvenile court proceedings.
The CASA volunteer gathers information about the child's situation, visits with assigned child in person on a monthly basis, attends court proceedings, and makes a recommendation to the judge so that the judge has the information to make a decision about the child's future. The CASA volunteer advocates for the child to be placed in a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.
