When children face abuse and neglect from the parents who brought them into this world, who watches out for the children? Who helps them? CASA does. Supported by the US DOJ's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention since 1985, CASA connects trained volunteers to the children who need advocacy, support, and guidance.

More than 700,000 children experience abuse or neglect each year. Instead of playing with neighbors and making happy family memories, they’re attending court hearings, adjusting to new foster homes and transitioning to new schools. That’s a heavy burden for a child to carry. With a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) or guardian ad litem (GAL) volunteer dedicated to their case, America’s most vulnerable children will have someone speaking up for their best interests. With your support, more children will have the opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving home.
