CASA serves abused, abandoned and neglected children, ages 8-19, who are dependents of the juvenile court system.  CASA volunteers establish stable relationships with foster children, getting to know their unique history and making informed recommendations to the courts.  When a child has an advocate, he/she is more likely to get needed services — and a permanent, stable home.
