What is a CASA?
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) are volunteers who serve as a voice for children in court. When a judge or commissioner is 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.
Children in family law custody battles have no social worker or case manager. If their family is in conflict because of addiction, domestic violence or mental illness, the children may experience neglect, abuse and/or emotional trauma. Barriers to services such as poverty can further increase the risk of harm for children caught in the middle. You can help by volunteering as a CASA.
