CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate. It is a national organization composed of ordinary people who make an extraordinary difference in a child’s life.


CASAs are trained volunteers appointed by a judge to speak for the well-being and safety of an abused or neglected child who is the subject of a dependency/custody hearing. CASAs strive to:

  • Provide the judge with unbiased information so that the best placement can be made
  • Ensure that children are not abused or neglected by the very system meant to protect them
  • Ensure that children spend less time embroiled in dependency issues and
  • Ensure that the child spends his/her life in a safe, loving, permanent home

CASA Mobile is totally funded by grants and personal donations.


In 1977, a Seattle juvenile court judge concerned about making drastic decisions with insufficient information conceived the idea of citizen volunteers speaking up for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the courtroom. From that first program has grown a network of nearly 1,000 CASA and guardian ad litem programs that are recruiting, training and supporting volunteers in 49 states and the District of Columbia.
