Court Appointed Special Advocate

Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. Too many spend years moving from one temporary home to another. They have no family to call their own. They are more likely than other children to face homelessness, unemployment, even prison as adults. That's why the Cout Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program is so important. CASA was created 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. Training to be an advocate involves 39 hours of training and 3 hours of court observation. Training is held at least twice per year. Our combined on-line and in person training meets on Wednesday evenings from 6-9 pm. Please see our website at: www.WarrenCountyCASA.org for more information.

The focus of a CASA is to ensure every child has a safe, permanent home where they can thrive.
