CASA & Family Visitation

Using an advocacy model through specially-trained volunteers that create working partnerships with families, attorneys, and service providers, CASA speaks for children and helps facilitate collaborative solutions that promote timely resolution of child abuse and neglect matters.

26 Volunteers donated 600 hours to help 82 children out of 2000 reported cases.

  • 82 Children Helped
  • 2000 Cases Reported


Children currently average more than three years in the limbo of foster care.

Children with a CASA volunteer are HALF as likely to spend time in long-term foster care


CASA Advocate speaks for the best interests of each child they are assigned. Each advocate gathers information from all pertinent parties involved with their case and transmits this information to the Family Court Judge in the form of court reports which the advocate and the program director jointly create. Advocates must be 21 years of age or older who exhibit responsibility, maturity, common sense, and have a flexible schedule. Advocates must complete the 30-hour training program and security clearance checks before being assigned to a case.
