CASA volunteers advocate for abused or neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system. Volunteers typically handle one case at a time, stay with each case until it is closed, or until the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many of the children we serve, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives.
