The mission of CASA is to speak for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the courts. We promote and support quality volunteer advocacy for children in the foster care system to make sure they don't get lost in an overburdened legal system or languish in a group or foster home. A CASA stays with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home.
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.
