What is CASA?
CASA, a nationally recognized program, provides trained volunteer advocates to become the eyes and ears of the judge and the voice for a child who is currently involved in the court system in Cambria and Somerset counties.
The statistics are deeply troubling. Each year in Cambria and Somerset Counties, more than 800 children who suffer abuse or neglect find themselves in the court system awaiting their fate.
What does CASA Do?
CASA Beginnings (Court Appointed Special Advocate) helps children who have come before the court because of abuse or neglect by recruiting, screening, training and supervising community volunteers.
