CASA

(Court Appointed Special Advocate)

 

The core of our mission is to speak for, to help, and to protect the most vulnerable members of our community.  

Our CASA program provides trained volunteers to act as advocates for abused or neglected children.  A CASA volunteer is appointed by a family court judge and sworn in as an officer of the court.  He or she provides the judge with a carefully researched background of the child to help the court make a sound decision about that child's future.  A CASA volunteer can thoroughly examine a child's case, has knowledge of community resources, and can make recommendations to the court regarding what is in the best interest of the child.  While CASAs are independent advocates, they work closely with social service caseworkers and the child's attorney to ensure that each child's voice is heard.
