What We Do

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.
Numerous long-term studies have demonstrated that children with a CASA volunteer are substantially
more likely to receive needed services (e.g. medical care, counseling, educational support)
less likely to spend time in long-term foster care
more likely to be adopted
less likely to re-enter the foster care system
