What is CASA?

Court Appointed Special Advocates® (CASAs) are community volunteers, just like you, who speak up for abused and/or neglected children.

Our CASA program belongs to a network of nearly 950 community-based programs that recruit, train and support citizen-volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and/or neglected children in courtrooms and communities.

News & Notes

Thank you, Pitts Orthodontics!!

Two and a half years ago, Dr. Pitts and Dr. Handelin at Pitts Orthodontics very graciously provided braces, pro-bono, to one of our CASA children. This month, she reached the finish line and now has a beautiful smile! This generous gesture has resulted in a huge positive impact on her confidence and outlook for her future.

Thank you so much Pitts Orthodontics for serving these very vulnerable children!
