WHAT IS TRI-COUNTY CASA AND HOW DO WE HELP?
Tri-County CASA trains and supports volunteers from the community to advocate for abused and neglected children who need support in the family court system. These advocates, or CASA volunteers, work with a child and his or her family to ensure that the child is safe in his or her home and in his or her community and that the child’s voice is heard in his or her own legal case.

SEE THE DIFFERENCE
Become a CASA Volunteer
The mission of Tri-County CASA is to provide trained volunteers to help children and their families as they move through every stage of the court process.
CASA volunteers act as a watchdog for the child during the life of their case, ensuring their voices are heard and protected throughout the process.
CASA volunteers speak for the child in the courtroom and ensure that their best interests are represented.
We are always on the lookout for volunteers that have a desire to help children. There are no specific requirements, just the desire to help these kids find safe homes. All training is done through the organization. Volunteers must be 21 years of age or older.
THE EFFECTIVENESS OF ADVOCACY
Research supports the effectiveness of CASA’s best interest advocacy.
- Over 93% of Judges report a positive overall experience with CASA volunteers.
- The portion of children re-entering the foster care system is consistently reduced by half.
- Children and youth assigned a CASA/GAL volunteer reported significantly higher levels of hope. A child’s hope has been linked to numerous positive outcomes such as academic success, overall wellbeing, increases in self-control, positive social relationships, and optimism.
- Findings indicates that children with court-appointed special advocates tender to receive more social services and received fewer placements. They tended to perform better academically and behaviorally in school that academic year.
