CASA programs use trained, community volunteers to speak for abused and neglected children in court. Volunteers follow these children’s cases as they move through the court system, making sure children do not get lost in foster care.

The CASA volunteer researches the case, learns everything about the child’s special situation and presents findings to a court judge on the child’s best interest. CASA helps make sure abused and neglected children are able to live in safe, permanent homes. CASA helps children have the chance to reach their full potential in life.
