The Iowa Court Appointed Special Advocate Program recruits, trains and supports community volunteers to serve as an effective voice in court for abused and neglected children, strengthening efforts to ensure that each child is living in a safe, permanent and nurturing home. The Court Appointed Special Advocate is typically assigned one case at a time and does a variety of things to promote the child's best interests: investigation, assessment, facilitation, monitoring and advocacy.
CASAs are recruited to serve in all 99 Iowa counties.
“Children are the future, every child needs a chance, someone to guide them in the right direction and help them make better choices for a better future for all of us. Become a CASA volunteer and help these children make a better future for everyone.”
—Martha Introna, CASA Volunteer
