Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Brown County recruits, trains, and supports citizen volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children under court protection until they are safe and thriving in permanent homes.
CASA volunteers build special relationships with children under court protection and through regular visits and advocate exclusively on their behalf in monthly written reports to the judge. A CASA volunteer is very often the only consistent adult in the lives of the children we serve, many of whom are in foster care.
A child with a CASA volunteer is more likely to get help with other services, spend less time in foster care, find a safe, permanent home, and do better in school.
Last year alone, 133 CASA volunteers advocated for 232 children in Brown County, making their lives safer and their futures brighter! Because of caring people like you who care deeply about children, we will reach even more children in need of an advocate.
