What We Do

CASA of St. Landry, Inc. recruits eligible volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children.

The role of CASA volunteers:

  • give special representation to abused children so they will not fall through the cracks of overworked and underfunded juvenile justice and child protection systems.
  • work with all parties involved in a case to see that the child is placed in a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible.
  • submit a recommendation to the judge advocating what they believe to be in the child's best interest.
  • do not provide legal representation in the courtroom, nor do they replace a social worker.
  • serve on only one or two cases, providing more thoroughly researched information than other professionals could possibly provide given their case loads.
