Mission Statement

Louisiana CASA, Inc. advocates for abused and neglected children in the court system through the development, growth and support of local CASA programs in Texas. Texas CASA also advocates for foster children in the Texas Legislature.

Description

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer, specially trained and supervised, is appointed by a judge to speak up for a child in foster care. CASA volunteers help secure safe and permanent homes for abused and neglected children by advocating, investigating, and monitoring cases involving children in foster care.

Who Is CASA?
CASA volunteers are people like you. They’re teachers, business people, retirees, stay-at-home moms, grandparents, college students; extraordinary people who want to make certain the voices of abused and neglected children are heard.

What Do CASAs Do?
CASA volunteers get to know the child and speak to everyone involved in the child’s life, including their family members, teachers, doctors, lawyers, social workers, and others.

The information they gather and their recommendations help the court make informed decisions. CASA volunteers commit to a child until the case is closed and the child is in a safe, permanent home.
