What is a Court Appointed Special Advocate?
A Court Appointed Special Advocate, or CASA, is a community of volunteers trained to amplify the voice of an abused or neglected child in the foster care system.
CASA Volunteers gather information and make recommendations to help judges decide the best scenario for and interest of the child. The CASA Volunteer advocates for the child until the case is permanently resolved. For many abused and neglected children, their CASA Volunteer is the only constant presence during a frightening, uncertain time.
