About

The Iowa Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program commissions trained community volunteers to serve as an effective voice in court for abused and neglected children, strengthening efforts to ensure that each child is living in a safe, permanent and nurturing home.

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is a very special person who genuinely cares about children having a safe, stable and permanent home. The volunteer must not be afraid to "Speak Up" for these special children! Our program is available in the following NE Iowa Counties: Allamakee, Chickasaw, Clayton, Delaware, Dubuque, Howard & Winneshiek. These programs are serviced through the Iowa Child Advocacy Board office out of Lansing, Iowa.
