Who We Are


When a foster care case begins, the courtroom is crowded with a judge, a representative from Child Protective Services, biological parents, family members, attorneys, and other courtroom staff. Even though the child should be the priority in the room, the judges, caseworkers, and service providers who determine the child’s future simply do not have adequate time to understand the specific needs of each and every child, instead focusing on the legal processes.

By speaking for the child, CASA ensures that the wishes and needs of the child are not overlooked by the many competing interests at play.
