Mission Statement

The mission of CASA for Kids, Inc. is to provide volunteer advocates to work independently for the best interests of each child of service coming within the jurisdiction of the Michigan Barry, Eaton, and Ingham Counties Courts due to abuse and neglect.


CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate. Our mission is to provide volunteer advocacy within the court system and the community on behalf of children in the foster care system who have experienced abuse and neglect. We are committed to serving every child we can, regardless of race, background, or identity, because we believe every child deserves a safe, supportive, and permanent home where they can thrive.

Our volunteers undergo extensive training on trauma, child development, child welfare, advocacy, DEI, and the court system. Volunteers are matched with a supervisory staff who provides ongoing mentorship and support. They are then sworn in as court officers and intentionally matched with a child or sibling group, whom they meet weekly for the entire court case. Volunteers receive a court order that gives them access to all information pertaining to the child. This is unique to this position, as no other role entrusts volunteers or paid individuals outside of the child welfare system.
