Court-Appointed  
Special Advocates

Court-Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) make a life-changing difference for children who have experienced abuse or neglect. Each volunteer is appointed by a judge to advocate for a child’s best interest in court. Our volunteers help judges develop a fuller picture of each child’s life. Their advocacy enables judges to make the most well-informed decision for each child.

CASA Volunteer Spotlight

"We are mentors, friends, coloring buddies, football throwers, cheerleaders. We talk to teachers, coaches, therapists, medical professionals, social workers, foster parents; and ultimately, we are court advocates for the children to whom we are assigned. We make recommendations in court that are often put in place by a judge, including actions protecting a child’s medical, educational and therapeutic recovery from trauma. We help children thrive."

Nancy Valentine, CASA Advocate
