CASA’s mission is to train and supervise community volunteers, appointed by the Family Court, to advocate for the best interests of children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse and/or neglect.

Volunteers work to ensure the emotional, physical, and educational well-being of these children while they reside in foster homes or residential facilities.

The ultimate goal of volunteers is to help establish a safe, stable and permanent home for each child served.
