Change a Child’s Story
A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is a volunteer powered by a network of committed people who believe society has a fundamental obligation to be the voice for maltreated children.
CASA volunteers advocate for these abused and neglected children, making sure their basic rights and essential needs don’t get overlooked or ignored by the system. Their stories can have better endings because of people like you.
Federal law requires that an advocate, such as a CASA volunteer, be appointed in all cases of abuse and neglect.
Overburdened workers in the child welfare system are often unable to give detailed attention to each child. Children need a voice. They need someone who can promote and protect their best interests.
A CASA volunteer can give the child what others do not have, and that is TIME!
A CASA volunteer sees the child monthly, gathers information about the child’s situation, provides information and recommendations to the court through written reports, attends court proceedings, and continues to advocate until the child is in their “forever” home.
“To give a child a CASA volunteer is to give them a voice. To give them a voice is to give them hope, and to give them hope is to give them the world.”
– Pamela, former foster child
