We hold our volunteers in the highest esteem; they are an invaluable asset to every facet of fulfilling CASA’s mission of advocacy for children. They provide passionate, extraordinary service without compromise for what is in a child’s best interest.
CASA is the only volunteer organization that empowers everyday citizens as appointed members of the court.
In an overburdened social welfare system, abused and neglected children often slip through the cracks among hundreds of current cases.
CASA volunteers in Southwest Missouri change that. Appointed by judges, CASA volunteers typically handle just one case at a time—and commit to staying on that case until the child is placed in a safe, permanent home.
While others may come and go, CASA volunteers provide that one constant that children need in order to thrive.
