To ensure that every abused, neglected and/or abandoned child in St. Clair, Calhoun, and Talladega Counties has a competent, caring volunteer appointed to advocate for the child's best interest in court; so that child can obtain perminancy in a stable environment.
Tri-County CASA is a nonprofit organization that is a provisional member of National Court Appointed Special Advocates. Currently Alabama has 10 local CASA programs serving, but as of recently there were not any programs serving Central Alabama. Tri-County CASA is now that local organization serving Central Alabama. Tri-County CASA's main goal is to identfy, recruit, train, manage, and retain volunteers. These CASA volunteers, once trained, will be appointed by the Judge to research, report, and advocate on behalf of abused and neglected children within the counties of Calhoun, St. Clair, and Talladega. We share the same goal as any other CASA in Alabama and around the United States in that we want to have a CASA volunteer for every abused and neglected child. Having a CASA volunteer does not cost the court any money; we are a free service. We solely rely on donations, grants, and volunteers to keep our program going.
