CASA...Court Appointed Special Advocates....for children
Goochland CASA advocates within the Juvenile Court system for the best interest of abused and neglected children guided by the belief that every child is entitled to a safe and permanent home.
What is CASA?
Goochland CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) is a member of a network of 951 community-based programs that recruit, train and support citizen-volunteers. These volunteers advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in courtrooms and communities. Volunteer advocates, empowered directly by the courts, offer judges the critical information they need to ensure that each child’s rights and needs are being attended to while in foster care. Volunteers stay with children until they are placed in loving permanent homes. For many abused children, a CASA volunteer is the only constant adult presence in their lives.
