Mission Statement

The purpose and mission of the Second District CASA program is to provide trained advocates for abused and neglected children in the juvenile court process. Trained CASA volunteers will advocate for the child's needs and provide a voice for the child in court, in the foster care system, and through family reunification or adoption. In addition to individual advocacy, the Second District CASA program will educate the public and increase community involvement in protecting children from abuse and neglect.

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.
