Organization Information

Mission Statement

The mission of Chesterfield CASA is to promote safe, permanent homes for abused and neglected children by providing trained volunteers to advocate for them throughout their involvement in the juvenile court process.


Virginia’s first CASA program began in 1986 in Newport News. In 1990 the Virginia General Assembly enacted legislation providing for statewide implementation of the CASA program. The legislation assigned the responsibility for oversight of local programs and for development of statewide regulations to the Department of Criminal Justice Services. The regulations provide programs with standards to help ensure consistency of program development and service delivery; addressing several basic areas, including screening, training, and policy and procedure development for local programs.

Chesterfield CASA, a member of the National CASA Association for Children, was formed by a group of local citizens concerned about the increasing number of child victims in our community. We serve the 12th Judicial District Juvenile & Domestic Relations Court, with jurisdiction in Chesterfield County and the City of Colonial Heights. We received our 501(c)(3) status in 1996 and began assigning volunteers to cases in 1997. Since then, we have been appointed to advocate for over 1,900 children.
