Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is an organization that offers important support and help to abused and neglected children whose parents are going through divorce. CASA advocates generally enter the picture when allegations of abuse or domestic violence arise.

These individuals go into homes, interview children, observe the settings and sit though gut wrenching court hearings listening to the traumatic incidences of beatings, incest, and mental abuse that children go through. Their goal is to figure out what is in the children’s best interests and make a recommendation to the court.

The Roles & Work of CASA Volunteers

Some examples of the ways in which CASA’s work has helped abused and neglected children whose parents are going through divorce are presented in the following:

  • CASA volunteers have been strong advocates for infants and toddlers, helping them find families via adoption.
  • CASA volunteers have helped legally change the children’s names to match the adopting family’s name.
  • One CASA advocate was recognized for helping two struggling teen brothers and finding a breakthrough connection with them through creative writing and art.
  • CASA has also worked hand-in-hand with juvenile court judges to help get troubled youth into their courts, so they can pass orders that best benefit those children.
  • CASA volunteers provide long-term support for those in foster care.
  • CASA volunteers have been praised by the courts for their day-to-day communication with judges, foster families, and new legal families, which is crucial to helping children overcome past abuse and move on to a bright future.
