Community Announcement: PA CASA Volunteer Opportunity

PA Court Appointed Special Advocates (PA CASA) 

The PA CASA Association, together with national and local CASA programs, supports and promotes court appointed volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children so they can thrive in safe, permanent homes.

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer is a trained citizen who is appointed by a judge to speak up for abused and neglected children in court.

The CASA concept is based on the commitment that every child has the right to a safe, permanent home. In court jurisdictions that have adopted the program, the juvenile or family court judge turns to a well-trained specially trained pool of CASA volunteers each time a case involving a child is received.
