What is CASA?

The Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program, is a nationwide endeavor that recruits and trains volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and/or neglected children during family court proceedings. In their role, CASAs gather all information possible from theparties involved in foster care cases. Each month, they spend time with their court-assigned children/teens to build a relationship and fully understand the children’s wishes for their futures so that they (the CASA) can be their voice in court. CASAs are unique figures in the foster care field because they have no agenda, no ulterior motives, and typicallyare only assigned one case at a time. The advocates’ only focus is on the children/teens, and they look at all information gathered through the lens of what is best for them. While caseworkers, judges, and even foster families might change, a CASA can be a consistent friend for a youth in foster care and maintain a relationship to possibly last a lifetime
