What is CASA?
CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates.
Volunteers are recruited, trained and supervised to be Court Appointed Special Advocates for abused children in Juvenile Court.
National CASA’s mission for a CASA Volunteer is to have direct and sufficient contact with a child to carry out an independent and valid investigation of the child’s circumstances, including the child’s needs and wishes, so as to be able to make sound, thorough and objective recommendations in the child’s best interest.
To fulfill this mission, CASA Volunteers spend hours talking to the child, family members, foster family, teachers, therapists, social workers, and all the parties in the case.
This work is very intense, and the CASA staff is committed to giving the CASA Volunteer the emotional support necessary to continue this important work.
