Being a voice.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN A CHILD’S LIFE.
The mission of CASA of Clark & Pike Counties is to speak for the best interest of abused and neglected children in court. We promote and support quality volunteer representation for children, to provide each child a safe, permanent home.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY.
By becoming a Court Appointed Special Advocate, or CASA volunteer, you can help keep abused and neglected children safe, giving them a chance at finding happiness. CASA volunteers are individuals from all walks of life who speak up for a child’s best interests in court. You are not a foster parent, you are a voice.
CASA volunteers are each assigned to help one child or set of siblings at a time, so they can focus on giving that child or sibling group the individualized advocacy and attention they need. CASA volunteers can specify the age, gender and ethnicity preferences of children they would like to work with.
CASA volunteers get to know the child and gather information from everyone involved in his or her daily life, including family members, foster parents, teachers, daycare providers, doctors, lawyers, social workers and other relevant persons. You spend a significant amount of time with the child, gaining his or her trust.
Nobody longs for a safe and loving family more than a child in foster care. As a court-appointed special advocate (CASA) volunteer, you are empowered by the courts to help make this dream a reality. You will not only bring positive change to the lives of these vulnerable children, but also their children and generations to come.
Every Child Has A Chance - It's You!
With your gift to CASA, you can help the CASA program both in your community to provide the very best volunteer advocacy for children removed from their homes due to abuse and/or neglect.
NATIONAL CASA ASSOCIATION.
