Our mission is to recruit, train and support volunteer Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers. These CASA’s are very special people, who make a commitment to a child in need. A child who has suffered abuse and neglect to the extent that they have been removed from their homes and placed into foster care. They are children who have experienced unspeakable trauma and now are experiencing the added trauma of being removed from their homes and placed with a strange family. Their lives are turned upside down.
After completing training, CASA volunteers are sworn in as an officer of the court by a Judge in the Superior Court. In this capacity, they have both rights and responsibilities that go along with this designation. For starters, they are expected to spend time with the child, to get know their wants and needs. Additionally, they are obligated to meet with the people who are important in the life of their child. The ultimate goal is to put together a comprehensive view of what is going on that child’s life for the court and the other players in the child welfare system. The advocate’s court report is used by the court, social workers and the attorneys who also tasked with representing the best interests of the child.
Please consider giving your financial support, donating your expertise or in-kind gifts or becoming a CASA advocate/volunteer. You’ll be glad you did!
