Our Mission

CASA For Children, Inc. provides quality volunteers who advocate for abused and neglected children involved in the court system with the goal of timely placement in safe, permanent homes.

Vision Statement

Our vision is to provide a CASA Volunteer to EVERY abused and/or neglected child that enters into the foster care system. 

How Do CASA Volunteers Help Children?

CASA Volunteers are appointed by the Circuit Court Judge to represent the best interest of the children who have been removed from their home due to abuse and neglect. CASA Volunteers serve one case at a time, often being the only constant in these children’s lives during this difficult time. CASA Volunteers submit written reports to the Judge on the facts of their case. 

Who Are CASA Volunteers?

CASA Volunteers are individuals from all walks of life. You don’t have to be a lawyer or social worker to be a volunteer. If you have a passion for children and have an interest in volunteering, we would love to discuss becoming a volunteer with you.

CASA Volunteers undergo an application, screening, and training process to be sworn in as a CASA Volunteer. CASA Volunteers must be 21 years of age and successfully pass a background check. After completing a 30-hour preservice training and being sworn in, a CASA volunteer will be appointed on a case and will remain on the case until permanency is achieved
