A group of adults who volunteer to help children whose troubled parents wind up in court need help from the community. These adults are called child advocates who ensure that any court order, or sentence pays close attention to how it affects the children, especially as it determines the living conditions of the children.
Court Appointed Special Advocates is a non-profit group of adults who become truly the protectors of children whose parents have abused them or subjected them to unhealthy and even dangerous living conditions. As their parents wind their way through the criminal or civil courts, CASA volunteers ensure that someone speaks up for the children’s best interests before a judge hands down a ruling or sentence.
