What is CASA?

Crawford County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), under professional leadership, trains and provides citizen volunteers to advocate for the best interests of children who are involved in juvenile court proceedings primarily as a result of abuse and/or neglect.

Crawford County CASA is dedicated to ensuring that children have a safe, permanent and nurturing home in the shortest time frame possible.


A Safe Permanent Home: Is that too much to ask?

Crawford County CASA doesn’t think so. We recruit and train volunteers to speak up for abused and neglected children in court. These volunteers conduct an independent investigation, establish working relationships with all involved parties, help monitor compliance with family service plans and court orders, and report their findings and recommendations to the court.


Please contact us if you are interested in our next volunteer training.
