The MISSION of CASA of the Parkland is to recruit, train, and support community volunteers who assist the court in protecting the best interests of abused and neglected children in the 24th Circuit. The 24th Circuit includes St. Francois, Ste. Genevieve, Madison, and Washington Counties.
CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to advocate for children’s best interests. They stay with each case until it is closed and the child is in a safe, permanent home. Volunteers work with legal and child welfare professionals, educators and service providers to ensure that judges have all the information they need to make the most well-informed decisions for each child.
Volunteer pre-service training classes are held quarterly. For more information about becoming a CASA volunteer please contact CASA of the Parkland at firstname.lastname@example.org.
