CASA of West Central Louisiana

Description:

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteers are trained and appointed by a judge to serve as a child's voice in court. Volunteers represent the best interest of Abused and Neglected Children in foster care of Vernon and Beauregard Parish.

Child abuse and neglect can be prevented and stopped, and families strengthened, by proven programs that work!
CASA provides a unique response on behalf of children that are:
at risk of not having adequate nourishment or clothing or shelter.
at risk of physical injury or illness or handicap without adequate medical care.
at risk of not being encouraged, or consoled, or nurtured by a caring and trusted adult.
at risk of lingering in foster care, wanting for a permanent, stable and secure home.

Become a CASA volunteer and be rewarded with some of the most powerful and fulfilling experiences you can find. CASA is the only organization that empowers everyday citizens as appointed officers of the court. Your involvement will make a direct impact on a child's life and perhaps for generations to come.
