Mission Statement

Our Mission is to support effective volunteer advocacy for the best interests of abused and neglected children involved in the court system.

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.

Would you recommend Sandoval County CASA Program?

by Maureen N. (May 13, 2009)
As a volunteer with CASA, I advocate for the best interest of an abused and/or neglected child with the court system. It is gratifying to know that I helped the child to reunite with his/her family or helped find a suitable alternative solution. The cases can be heart-rendering, but in the end you know you helped that child and that is a great feeling.
