CASA volunteers make sure that the abuse and neglect that the children originally suffered at home does not continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the system.
Children who have CASA volunteers spend 7.5 months less in foster care, experience fewer out of home placements, and have significantly improved educational performance.
More than 90% of children with CASA volunteers never reenter the child welfare system, a significant difference compared to the general foster care population.
Complex cases receive more attention so they can move forward in a timely way. CASA volunteers are typically appointed to complex cases - those where there are multiple iso factors which must be fully understood in order to make a placement decision that will be in the child's best interests.
Court-ordered services are more carefully targeted and monitored with a CASA volunteer's detailed knowledge of the child's circumstances, making service dollars go farther.
The 37th Judicial Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is a volunteer program providing a consistent voice for child victims of abuse and neglect in Howell, Shannon, Oregon and Carter counties.
Any child who needs a CASA Volunteer will get one.
