The Santa Cruz County CASA Program promotes and supports community-based volunteers who advocate on behalf of abused and neglected children in juvenile dependency cases.
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) are the only volunteers that are appointed by a judge and empowered to stand up for an abused or neglected child in court. CASAs help to ensure that children who are abused and/or neglected are protected and assisted through every step of the legal process.
CASA generally represents only 1 case at a time, but any case may affect
more than 1 child. CASAs interview all parties to the case, ensure
appropriate services are being offered to the child and family, and
obtain factual and objective information with which they make
recommendations to the court at all review hearings.
