Helping children in the family court system
We began our exciting collaboration with the National Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program in 2011. Since then, LACASA and CASA have accomplished good things for the children of Livingston County who are in the court system due to abuse or neglect.
- The Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program at LACASA Center provides highly-trained community volunteers to advocate for the best interest of children who come into the court system as a result of abuse or neglect.
- CASA Volunteers attend a specialized training program and upon completion are appointed to serve as a CASA by a family court judge.
- Our CASA team includes more than 50 volunteers who advocate for foster children throughout Livingston County.
- The leadership and specially-trained volunteers of CASA work closely with local family court representatives and the Department of Human Services to safeguard the well-being and basic human rights of these children.
