Be The Voice of the Child.
A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer, specially trained and supervised, is appointed by a Judge to speak up for a child in foster care. CASA volunteers help to secure safe and permanent homes for abused and neglected children by investigating and monitoring cases involving children in foster care.
CASA of St. Landry-Evangeline, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to advocating for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the St. Landry and Evangeline Parishes, located in Louisiana. CASA, which stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates, recruits, trains, and supports volunteers who serve as advocates for children involved in the foster care system. These volunteers, known as CASA advocates, work closely with children, their families, social workers, attorneys, and other professionals to gather information and make recommendations to the court about the child's well-being. CASA of St. Landry-Evangeline, Inc. plays a crucial role in ensuring that these vulnerable children receive the necessary support, services, and safe, permanent homes.
"Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future. Ensuring their safety and well-being is not just a moral duty but an investment in a brighter tomorrow."
