Who We Are

Our Model and How it Works

CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to advocate for children’s best interests. They stay with each case until it is closed and the child is in a safe, permanent home. We serve children from birth through the age defined by state statute as the limit to youth remaining in care.

Volunteers work with legal and child welfare professionals, educators and service providers to ensure that judges have all the information they need to make the most well-informed decisions for each child.

Our best-interest advocacy is driven by the guiding principle that children grow and develop best with their family of origin, if that can be safely achieved. Most of the children we work with are in foster care, but some are with their family of origin. And, most children who leave foster care do so to return to their family.

Our Impact - Brighter Futures and Stronger Communities

Having a caring adult advocate for their best interest can make a lasting difference for a child who’s been neglected or abused.  Children who have experienced abuse or neglect fare better with a CASA volunteer by their side.
