A Court Appointed Special Advocate is a trained community volunteer who is appointed by a judge to advocate for the best interests of an abused or neglected chidl in juvenile court proceedings.
The CASA volunteer gathers information about the child's situation, attends court proceedings and submits a written report to the judge and other parties in the case 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.
