Alabama Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) — Speaking Up for Abused and Neglected Children

More than 14,000 of Alabama’s most vulnerable children are attending court hearings, adjusting to new homes and navigating the child welfare system every day. CASA volunteers are trained to advocate for the best interests of these children.

Our goal is to provide a dedicated CASA volunteer for every abused and neglected child to give them a voice and help them thrive in a safe and loving home. With your support, Together We Will achieve that goal. Learn how you can help.

adult, CASA volunteers have been the certainty in uncertain times for these children.

During the pandemic, families have been quarantined and separated for months from their loved ones in an effort to stay healthy. Imagine what it’s been like for thousands of children who were removed from their homes and placed in foster care during this time. Picture children having to relocate to a new home, new school, attend courtroom hearings with a revolving door of adults—all while coping with the trauma of abuse
or neglect.
