Blue Ridge CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) for Children recruits, trains and supervises volunteers who advocate for children who have been victims of abuse or neglect. The goal of CASA’s advocacy is to find safe, permanent and nurturing homes for these children. CASA volunteer advocates serve as an extra set of eyes and ears for the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court judge, collecting information from all parties within a child’s life and compiling the information in a court report. Children with a CASA volunteer advocate are better represented, receive more services, and do better on a number of well-being indicators.
