Mission Statement

The mission of CASA is to speak for the best interests of abused and neglected children in Family Court. The CASA program trains and supports quality volunteers to advocate for a safe and permanent home for every child in the Child Welfare System.

Description

Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) was formed in 1977 by a Seattle judge who recognized that attorneys did not have the time to provide all of the information needed to make a fully informed decision in dependency cases. CASA programs recruit, train, and supervise volunteers. As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by family court judges to be a voice for children in court. The goal is to place a child into a safe, loving home where he/she can thrive. It is the CASA vision to provide a volunteer for each and every abused and neglected child who needs an advocate.
