I am a foster youth with the potential to do everything I dream of doing. And there are thousands more like me.

-Jessica H.

I am for the child who is too often forgotten.

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer is an everyday hero like you who advocates for abused and neglected children in Milwaukee County Children’s Court. Learn more about our upcoming CASA training program and how you can make a difference in a child’s life.

Because Every Child Needs Someone In Their Corner

Our motto defines who we are and what we do. Every child needs someone in their corner.  It is best if that someone is the child’s parent. But what about the one in ten children in America today who are raised without either parent in the home?  We are here to help all of the relatives, friends and neighbors who want to keep children safe.  We are here for community members who see children impacted by abuse, neglect, violent crime and addiction and need help navigating child protection, criminal reporting or just figuring out how to get help.

Do you want to be that “someone” in a child’s corner? There are so many options for getting involved or lending a hand.  Think about what a child would do to help you. Watch our video for inspiration.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Change Lives

“Being in foster care is living in a constant state of flux. Homes, schools, families…everything is always changing, often suddenly and without warning. The only constant was my CASA volunteer. Without her I would have been lost in the system.” MELISSA, FORMER FOSTER YOUTH

“National CASA is an organization of people with a proven record of service, excellence, high standards, determination and an unwavering commitment to abused and neglected children and to advocating for justice for all children.” JUDGE JOYCE WILLIAMS WARREN (RETIRED)
