Mission Statement

The mission of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Philadelphia County is to train and support community volunteers to advocate for the health, safety, stability and well-being of abused and neglected children.

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.

I began here as a volunteer in 2007. Volunteering with this organization opened my eyes to the realities of the child welfare system in Philadelphia, and changed the way I look at the world forever. By the time my case had closed, I knew I needed to dedicate my life to bettering the situation of children in this country.
