Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) was created in 1977 to ensure that the best interests of abused and neglected children were advcocated for in court for well-trained volunteer child-advocates. As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be voices for these children in court. Advocates conduct independent, fact-finding investigations, review records, and talk to everyone involved with their assigned cases. Their recommendations help insure that these children are placed into a safe, loving homes. It is the CASA vision to make a direct impact on children's lives.
"It's about helping a child replace a life of hurt with one of hope."
