Court Appointed Special Advocates are volunteers who speak for kids in court.
A CASA volunteer is a trained community member who is appointed by a juvenile or family court judge to speak for the best interest of children who are brought before the court. The majority of a CASA volunteer’s assignments are home placement cases where an abused or neglected child has been removed for protection from the care of his or her parents.
The reports of child abuse and neglect in the State of Wyoming for a years time period are alarming!
In Wyoming approximately 7,000 reports of child abuse or neglect are received each year, 4,000 of which require serious investigation. Often, these children become victims of this country’s overburdened child welfare system – a complex legal network of lawyers, social workers and judges who frequently are too overburdened to give thorough, detailed attention to each child who comes before them.
Have a blast helping the kids at Sonny’s RV 5000 East Yellowstone Highway!
