Hosted by

CASA of Warren and Forest Counties

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) are community volunteers, just like you, who stand up and speak out to help abused and neglected children. To a foster child adrift in the system, having a CASA Volunteer is more than a compass — it’s a lifeline. ​ This CASA is part of a national network of community-based, non-profit organizations that recruit, screen, train, and supervise volunteers to "Speak Up for a Child" removed from home due to abuse or neglect. CASA works one-on-one with an abused or neglected child, advocating for his or her best interests and working towards achieving permanency in a safe, nurturing home as soon as possible. Our vision is to have a safe and loving home for every child.
