CASA of the Continental Divide
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) work for the Judge as appointed “friends” of the court, alongside attorneys and social workers. When a CASA volunteer is appointed to a child’s case, he or she is responsible for taking the time to find out as much as possible about that child. CASA volunteers search for information. They review records, interview parents, talk to teachers, neighbors and, most importantly, the child. These volunteers then submit a report to the court to recommend to the judge what’s best for a child’s future.
