CASA STANDS FOR
COURT APPOINTED SPECIAL ADVOCATES
CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives.
INTRODUCING: OUR NEWEST ADDITIONS
Jessie R., Tamara G., Jessica R., Rachael I. and Biancia B. completed their training and observation and are ready to advocate for our kids.
We are so appreciative of their eagerness and passion for standing up for abused and neglected children. They are excellent additions to the CASA family!
FROM BABIES TO COLLEGE STUDENTS
During her initial CASA training, Lea W.’s class was discussing a current case that by all accounts was heart-wrenching and one of the more complicated cases in the program. Little did Lea know it at the time, but that case would soon become her introduction to the complex, but rewarding work of a CASA.
