CASA is a community-based organization that trains volunteers to advocate for the best of interests of abused and neglected children in court. CASA volunteers are everyday people who want to make a difference in children’s lives. The volunteers of CASA are responsible for gathering information that will enable the court to understand the situations of the children. They become the eyes and ears of the court, making independent, objective recommendations regarding the child’s best interest.
