CASA volunteers work within the court system in collaboration with key agencies, legal counsel, and community resources to serve as the child's advocate in juvenile court. The volunteer performs three vital functions: 1) provide the only independent reports to the court focused on the child's medical, educational and social emotional needs; 2) serve as a steady presence in the child's life; and 3) maintain the complete and accurate history of the child's life for all the other parties.

Our team of nearly 300 passionate volunteers come together for the unique purpose of speaking up for abused and neglected children. They help these vulnerable children by being their VOICE in court, moving them out of foster care and into the safe, permanent, loving homes that they desperately need.
