What is CASA?
CASA Changes Lives
A child with a CASA will, when compared with a child in a like circumstance without a CASA:
- Spend significantly less time in out of home care
- Will have fewer disruptions in placement
- Will have overall fewer number of placements
- Will receive increased services as will their parents
This indicates that they will, unlike many children in foster care, stay in the same school thus maintaining the same support system, the same teachers and the same service providers. They are more likely to reach a safe, permanent, and forever home at a quicker rate than a child without a CASA advocate.
