CASA for Kids, Inc.

Child Advocacy 
The Child Advocacy program is provided to advocate for children that have suffered from abuse and neglect in the Juvenile Dependency Court System. This program is provided by recruiting, screening, training, and supervising community volunteers to become Court Appointed Special Advocates who will advocate and provide a voice on behalf of the child. This program is important because there is a need for CASA to oversee cases for children in court system. The outcome of this program is that the child with a CASA assigned to their case receive consistent visits from a CASA to ensure that the child’s voice is heard by the Juvenile Dependency Court Judge or Hearing Officer. Another outcome for our program is to ensure that the children we serve improve their overall health and school success.
