Welcome!

Thanks for stopping by to learn more about who we are and what we do. 

We invite you to join our family of volunteers and make a difference in a child’s life – and your own.

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A CASA VOLUNTEER

When a family is in crisis and becomes involved in the child welfare system, a judge may appoint a CASA volunteer to advocate for the child. That volunteer is called a Court Appointed Special Advocate®, or CASA.

CASA volunteers stay by a child’s side throughout the case, advocating for reunification with parents when safe and possible. If reunification is not safe or possible, CASA volunteers will advocate for the child to be adopted by, or live with, relatives or family friends. If that can not be achieved, CASA volunteers work towards adoption by a nonrelative. No matter what, CASA volunteers will keep in contact with the support network until the case closes so that everyone continues to put the child’s best interests first.

 

Our Mission:

CASA OF THE PINES exists to train community volunteers to advocate on behalf of abused and neglected children involved in the court system so that each child is placed in a safe permanent home.
