A volunteer advocate is a court-appointed, trained and committed adult who ensures that each child’s individual needs remain a priority in an overburdened child welfare system.
About the CASA Program
The CASA program in Leavenworth was established in 1994 and is based on the idea that average citizens can become professionally trained volunteers who serve as the eyes and ears of the court. Even more importantly, these volunteers are a voice for the child. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) meet all involved parties and make an impartial recommendation to the Judge. These advocates appear in court for the child and represent the child's best interest. CASAs monitor a case until its end, helping bring swift and permanent conclusions.
Then You Came Along
CASA Volunteers are everyday people, from all walks of life, who have been thoroughly screened and extensively trained to be a voice for the children they serve.
