The National CASA Association is a network of 955 CASA and guardian ad litem programs that recruit, train and support volunteer advocates in 49 states.

CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to advocate for the safety and well-being of children who have been removed from their homes due to parental abuse and neglect.

The volunteers watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they do not get lost in the legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives.

CASA volunteers have helped more than two million children find safe, permanent homes.
