ADVOCATE FOR CHILDREN IN THE COURTS
Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. Too many children spend many years moving from one temporary home to another. They have no family to call their own. They are more likely than other children to face homelessness, unemployment, even prison as adults. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s where CASA steps in. CASA was created to make sure the abuse and neglect these children originally suffered at home doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t continue as abuses and neglect at the hands of the system. As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court. The result is that a child is placed into a safe, loving home where he/she can thrive.
