HOW DOES CASA HELP CHILDREN?

CASA recruits, trains and supervises competent volunteers dedicated to advocating for the needs of abused and neglected children currently in court proceedings, who are too young to speak for themselves during the complicated maze of legal proceedings.

CASA promotes safe, permanent homes for all children and seeks to educate the community concerning the needs of abused and neglected children.

CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to advocate for abused or neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home.

For many of the children we serve, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives.
