TLC CASA is a program within TLC Children's Services that provides community based advocacy to promote safety and permanency for children who are victims of abuse and neglect. Trained and supervised volunteers, in cases assigned by the Juvenile Court Judge, center the focus of the case upon the child, giving the child a voice in the proceedings. The program further advocates resources for children and families involved in dependency proceedings and promotes community awareness of the problems and solutions to child abuse and neglect.
Appointed and empowered directly by the courts, CASA advocates for a child’s best interest by providing critical information to judges about the child’s needs and well-being to help the judge make the most well-informed decision. We do this important work through a network of caring and committed volunteers, who are assigned a child's case to advocate for their best interests throughout the duration of their foster care experience.
CASA is so grateful for those who join us in being a voice for a child. CASA Volunteers form special bonds with the children they advocate for, often being one of the only constants in a child’s life amidst the ever-changing world of foster care.
CASA Volunteers are an essential piece to ensuring children have the best possible outcomes-- kids assigned a CASA are half as likely to re-enter the foster care system-- and we are proud of the work our volunteers do each and every day!
