Become a CASA

When an abused or neglected child is removed from home, their world is turned upside down. Social workers,casa-logo lawyers and judges swoop in to help while the child struggles to pick up the pieces and make sense of what’s happened.

When you volunteer to be a Court Appointed Special Advocate – CASA – (known in some states as a Guardian ad litem), you become a crucial voice for a child. A CASA becomes familiar with his/her child’s case and make recommendations to the court so that child will have a safe, loving home. No special education or background is required to be a CASA, just a willingness to be trained and a desire to help abused and neglected children find a safe and permanent home.
