CASA of Union County

Mission: Since 2005, Court Appointed Special Advocates of Union County has been recruiting, training, supervising and supporting community volunteers to advocate for abused, neglected and abandoned children placed in foster homes or residential facilities. CASA volunteers ensure children’s best interests remain the priority while working toward establishing a safe, stable and permanent home for each child served.

Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children across this country are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. Too many spend years moving from one temporary home to another, and are more likely than other children to face homelessness, unemployment and even prison as adults. CASA was created to ensure the abuse and neglect these children suffered at home doesn't continue at the hands of the system. CASA trains volunteers to become advocates who are then appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court and in their community. The goal is for each child to be placed into a safe, loving home where he/she have permanency and can thrive.
