Be for the Child

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.
