Mission Statement

We believe every child deserves a safe and permanent home. CASA Volunteers give abused and neglected children a voice in court and advocate on their behalf. CASA Volunteers are a constant in the life of a child.

Description

Every year more than 600 children in Columbia and Sauk Counties are reported abused and neglected and 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 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.
