Mission Statement

The mission of CASA is to provide abused and neglected children with a voice in court and to make sure their critical needs are being met during the time they are under court protection. Our trained volunteers work to increase the accountability of the child welfare and court systems, with the goal of ensuring that these children are placed as quickly as possible into safe, loving, permanent homes.

Description

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.
