Change the world-one child at a time
Right here in our neighborhoods children are first abused or neglected, then they are taken from the only home they have ever known and propelled into a system they don't understand. We must ensure that these kids have a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) guardian ad litem to speak for their best interests.Change the world-one child at a time.
"We all have the ability. The difference is how we use it."
CASA is the only volunteer organization that empowers everyday citizens as officers of the court. In an overburdened social welfare system, abused and neglected children can easily slip through the cracks among hundreds of current cases. CASA volunteers change that. Appointed by judges, CASA 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 - a caring adult.
