Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA)
CASA Program - 7th Judicial District
Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers advocate for the best interest of abused and neglected children in the court system.
Adult volunteers are appointed by the Juvenile Court Judge to be an effective voice for a child; to be the judge's "eyes and ears," strengthening efforts to ensure each child is living in a safe, permanent, nurturing home.
CASAs are needed in Muscatine, Cedar, Clinton and Jackson Counties.

The Iowa CASA Court Appointed Special Advocate program is commited to train volunteers who would be appointed by a judge to speak up for abused and neglected children in the court system.
The Iowa CASA program, operates under the auspice of the Executive Branch of the State of Iowa. Volunteers become the voice of abused and neglected children in the court system, who otherwise would slip through the cracks of an already over-burdened child-welfare system. CASA volunteers also become the eyes and ears of the judge who appoints them to advocate on the best interest of the child.
