About

Court Appointed Special Advocates are volunteers who complete an extensive training process before being appointed by the Juvenile Court to the case of an abused or neglected child. The advocate gathers information about the child's situation by meeting with the child, parents, foster parents, social worker, teachers, etc. and reports to the court on what is in the child's best interest. The advocate then follows the case, meeting weekly with the child, to ensure the court's orders are carried out and the child receives needed services. Our goal is to help each child reach a safe, permanent home in a timely manner.
