Reviews for Court Appointed Special Advocate

Rating: 5 stars  

1 person found this review helpful

Court Appointed Special Advocates of Orange County is part of a large network that helps children in foster care. Volunteers like me spend time with a child or youth who is overseen by the Juvenile Court System. The Special Advocates are able to know the child's wants and needs and make them known to the court in ways that professionals often cannot due to their large caseloads. CASA makes permanence a priority for the children because research has found that many shifts in placement are not helpful. The volunteer Special Advocates work with professionals for what is best for the children.
