Cass County Court Appointed Special Advocate

Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) provides "best interest" advocacy to children for ages of birth to 19, who have been removed from their homes for abuse or neglect. CASA volunteers are citizens appointed by our judge, who are committed to ensuring that every child has the right to a safe and permanent home, to oversee abuse and neglect cases involving children in Cass County.
