Mission Statement

To work tirelessly until ever child shares in the safe embrace of a loving family.

Description

Volunteer advocates fill a vital role. Here's how it works:

  • CASA is appointed to a case by a local judge.
  • Appointment usually takes place when a petition is brought before the judge, in cases of reported child abuse or neglect.
  • CASA takes the information of both parties and launches an unbiased investigation using volunteer and staff advocates.
  • The detailed report provides the judge with an accurate depiction of circumstances.
  • Volunteer and staff advocates make recommendations in the report which are fact based, and seek to promote the most positive outcome for the child.
  • When the proceedings conclude, CASA continues to monitor the case to make sure all court orders are upheld, and the safety of the child continues to be priority.
