Mission Statement

The mission of Youth Service Bureau CASA is to provide highly-trained and supervised volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates as the voice in Court for the best interests of the abused and neglected children of Washington and St. Tammany Parishes, in support of their right to safe, permanent, nurturing homes.


Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. That's where CASA steps in. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) was created in 1977 to make sure the abuse and neglect these children originally suffered at home doesn't continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the system. As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court. The result is that a child is placed into a safe, loving home where he/she can thrive. It is the CASA vision to provide a volunteer for each and every abused and neglected child who needs one.
