A Court Appointed Special Advocate-CASA volunteer is a community citizen who has been trained and sworn in by a Judge

to advocate for the best interest of children who have been abused and neglected and are dependent wards of the state.

 

By visiting the child, interviewing those involved in the child's life, and working with the case workers, CASA volunteers strive to see each child placed in a safe and loving home as quickly as possible. 

 

By gathering information regarding the child's circumstances, attending court proceedings, and writing court reports, the CASA volunteer is able to make recommendations to ensure the child’s medical and dental, educational and emotional needs are a top priority. In addition, CASA volunteers represent the child's wishes, giving the child a voice in court, and thus in their future.

 

The CASA volunteer is a person the child can count on and is often the only consistent person in the child’s life during their time in foster care.
