About

Every day in our community, children are thrust into the child welfare system through no fault of their own. Some are victims of violence, psychological torment, or sexual exploitation; others have been neglected or abandoned by their parents. Most are frightened and confused. These children can easily become re-victimized by the very system designed to protect their welfare. The complex network of lawyers, social workers, and judges charged with making decisions for these children is often too overburdened with cases and paperwork to give thorough, detailed attention to every child.

This is why CASA volunteers are so important. Our volunteers focus only on the child’s needs and get to know hiw/her situation at school and home. CASA volunteers provide information to the juvenile court judge so he/she can make informed decisions about the child's future - without a CASA volunteer these children can quite literally be lost.
