Mission Statement

Advocate for abused and/or neglected children; give them hope, support and encouragement; enhance their resiliency; and ensure that their voices are heard as the juvenile court system seeks safe, permanent, and nurturing homes.

Description

Once assigned to a case, the CASA volunteer reviews court, school, medical and caseworker records. The CASA volunteer talks with everyone involved including parents, foster parents, social workers, school officials, health providers and most importantly, the child. The CASA then provides the judge with a factual, written report to help the court make a well-informed, timely decision about that child's future.

During the life of a case, a CASA volunteer monitors the child's situation to make sure he/she remains safe. CASA volunteers may be the only constant the child knows as he/she moves through the labyrinth of the child welfare system.
