Celebrating 15 Years Helping Kids
Did you know?
Local children in King County are living with violence, addiction, mental illness and other frightening risk factors in their homes without any social worker or case manager to help them.
Let that sink in for a moment… Children in family law custody cases (as opposed to dependency or foster care) are not provided with or connected to any protective services. Our mission is to increase the safety and well-being for local children from lower income families that are caught in the middle of high-conflict, high-risk custody cases involving allegations of domestic violence, substance abuse, criminal activity, child abuse or neglect, mental health and/or other risk factors.
CASA stands for court appointed special advocates. CASAs are volunteers who serve as a voice for vulnerable children in court cases. When a judge or commissioner is seriously worried about the safety or well-being of a child, they appoint a CASA to gather information for the court about that child’s circumstances. On average, at least 3 significant safety concerns have been identified when CASA is requested by a judge or commissioner and there is no other service available to help.
