The mission of CASA is to speak for the best interests of abused and neglected children involved in the court system through no fault of their own. We promote and support quality volunteer representation for children to provide each child a safe, permanent, nurturing home.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN A CHILD'S LIFE By BECOMING AN ADVOCATE IN COURT!
Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. That's where CASA steps in. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) was created in 1977 to make sure the abuse and neglect these children originally suffered at home doesn't continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the system. As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court. The result is that a child is placed 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 one. A CASA gets to know each child on a personal level by checking the progress and constantly monitoring and reporting housing, counseling, educational and medical needs. The CASA often has the most information to share before the judge in the courtroom setting. Free pre-service training is offered to qualified community members.
