WHAT IS CASA?

Superior Court judges appoint specially trained volunteers to speak up for abused and neglected children. Called “Court Appointed Special Advocates” (CASAs), they are also known as “guardians ad litem” (GALs). CASAs serve as the “eyes and ears” of the court. They are independent of the child’s parents and independent of the state’s child protection and child welfare system. 
 
CASAs investigate a child’s case and makes recommendations to the court. They monitor ongoing cases and try to facilitate communication and collaboration amongst the people and agencies involved with the child and the child’s family. Throughout the case, they advocate for the child’s best interests.
