The CASA Program was designed to provide trained volunteers who serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates for abused and neglected children. The CASA will serve as the "eyes and ears" of the court by providing information the judge needs to make decisions that are in the child's best interests. The CASA will conduct an independent investigation, seeking out the pertinent information and ensuring that the child has a home-like placement. The CASA will make recommendations to the court of methods to provide a safe, permanent home for the child. The CASA will facilitate and mediate between the parties in the case. The CASA will monitior the progress of the parents and the children and submit a written report to the judge. Ultimately, the role of the CASA is to decrease the amount of disruption in a child's life and to help ensure that a child's right to a stable and permanent home is fulfilled.
