Welcome to Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA)
CASA has been providing a voice for children who have experienced abuse/neglect in Jefferson county since 1986. These children are either currently in or at risk of entering foster care. CASAs best-interest advocacy helps ensure that children are safe, have a permanent home, and the opportunity to thrive. Our trained volunteers (A.K.A. CASAs) are appointed by the Jefferson County Family Court judge and are expected to stay with their assigned case until it closes. Through working with legal and child welfare professionals, educators, and service providers CASAs ensure that the judge has all of the information needed to make the most well-informed decision for each child.
