CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates. We are a national organization of volunteers that judges appoint to speak for the safety and well-being of abused and neglected children. The volunteer status of the CASAs ensures that the children’s well-being remains the sole objective of the CASAs.
Lake Country CASA Mission
To be a voice for abused and neglected children through the power of volunteer advocacy and change in the child protection system.
Volunteers get to know the child by talking with everyone in that child’s life; parents and relatives, foster parents, teachers, medical professionals, attorneys, social workers and others. They use the information they gather to inform judges and others of what the child needs and what will be the best permanent home for them.
CASA trains and supports passionate adults who fight for a child’s right to be safe, to be treated with dignity, and to learn and grow in the security of a loving family.
