Mission Statement


The mission of CASA of South Louisiana, is to recruit and support carefully selected quality community volunteers. In an effort to find each child a safe, nurturing, and permanent home, these volunteers are trained to speak for the best interests of abused and neglected children in court.

Description


CASA volunteers investigate the facts of a case and offer their child trust and advocacy during their time in foster care. While volunteers do not replace a social worker, they do provide crucial background information that assists judges in court. No special background or education is required to become a CASA volunteer. Everything you need to know will be covered during training, which are year-round. Our volunteer advocates, once trained, serve as a powerful voice for abused and neglected children in the foster care system within Acadia, Lafayette and Vermilion Parishes.
