CASA stands for Court-Appointed Special Advocate

CASA is the only volunteer position that empowers everyday citizens to be appointed by the Court. In an overburdened social welfare system, abused and neglected children often slip through the cracks among hundreds of current cases. CASA volunteers change that. Volunteers typically handle just one case at a time – and commit to staying on that case until the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. While others may come and go, CASA volunteers provide that one constant that children need in order to thrive.CASA volunteers have a profound impact on the children whom they serve. Children with CASAs are more likely to graduate from high school, spend less time in long-term foster care, and are more likely to be adopted.
