What is a CASA?

Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers are individuals from all backgrounds and walks of life who share a commitment to improving the lives of children in foster care who have experienced abuse or neglect. CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to advocate for children's best interests after completing all pre-service requirements. CASAs best-interest advocacy helps ensure children are safe, have a permanent home, and have the opportunity to thrive.

CASA is a national movement operating in 49 states and the District of Columbia. There are more than 85,000 volunteers throughout the country dedicated to making a life-changing difference for children who have experienced abuse or neglect.

How it Works
CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to advocate for children’s best interests. They stay with each case until the child is in a safe, permanent home and the case is closed by the court.

Volunteers visit with the child in their placement regularly, work with legal and child welfare professionals, educators and service providers to ensure judges have all the information they need to make the most well-informed decisions for each child. Having a caring, adult advocate for their best interest can make a lasting difference for a child who has experienced abuse or neglect.
