WHO ARE CASAS? HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT?
CASA Volunteers are, like Attorneys and GALs, officers of the court. A judge appointed a special advocate to represent the best interests of abused and/or neglected children in court proceedings.
WHAT DOES A CASA VOLUNTEER DO?
CASA Volunteers gather information for the court. She or he recommends to the judge what the child needs to be safe and what it is in the child’s best interest for a permanent home. A CASA Volunteer advocates for a speedy decision that considers a child’s sense of time.
