ADVOCACY FOR CHILDREN: HELPING CHILDREN AND IMPROVING LIVES
Tri-County CASA’s mission is to provide community based advocacy for children that promotes safety and permanency for kids who are victims of abuse and/or neglect. Trained and supervised volunteers focus on the child and become the “voice for the child” in court proceedings by presenting the child’s best interest. The program advocates for resources for kids and families involved in dependency proceedings and promotes community awareness of the problems and solutions to child abuse and neglect. In FY20, Tri-County CASA has 17 active trained and supervised volunteers who serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates to kids in dependency court proceedings. CASA is an entity whose mission and goal is helping children in need. Our mission and services support goals of safety and advocacy for children, permanency and stability for children in their living situations, and the child and family’s well-being.
