Court Appointed Special Advocates of Brown County

CASA of Brown County recruits, screens, trains and supports citizen volunteers to advocate on behalf of children under court protection until they are thriving in safe, nurturing and permanent homes.

CASA volunteers visit the child on a regularly and submit a monthly report to the judge on the child's safety and well-being to help the judge make important decisions on the child's future.

Many of the children we serve are in foster care and their CASA volunteer is the only consistent adult presence in their life. A child with a CASA volunteer is more likely to get help with other services, spend less time in foster care and do better in school.
