The Court Appointed Special Advocate Association (CASA) is the only volunteer organization that empowers everyday citizens as officers of the court. In an overburdened social welfare system, abused and neglected children often slip through the cracks among hundreds of current cases.
CASA volunteers change that. Appointed by judges, CASA volunteers typically handle just one case at a time – and commit to staying on that case until the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. While others may come and go, CASA volunteers provide that one constant that children need in order to thrive.
The Missouri CASA Association (MOCASA) is the coordinating agency for CASA programs throughout the state. Currently, there are 22 CASA programs in Missouri serving 23 of the 45 Judicial Circuits. Missouri CASA, together with its affiliate programs, provide support and promote court-appointed volunteer advocacy for Missouri’s abused and neglected children so they may thrive in safe, permanent homes.
Spring is here and it’s the perfect time to “Plant Seeds of Hope” by becoming a CASA Volunteer!
BONUS: We are offering a free pair of Crocs to each NEW CASA volunteer that is sworn in in 2013!
