Who We Are

CASA understands the vital need for the child to have a voice in the courtroom—and that each child is an individual with unique needs.

When a case begins, the courtroom is crowded with a judge, possibly a representative from a foster care agency, biological parents, family members, social workers, attorneys, and other courtroom staff.  Even though the child should be the priority in the room, the judges, caseworkers and service providers who determine the child’s future simply do not have adequate time to understand the specific needs of each and every child.

By speaking for the child, CASA ensures that the wishes and needs of the child are not overlooked by the many competing interests at play.
