Clark County CASA Program

The CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) Program is based on the belief that every child has a right to a safe, permanent, loving home. In Clark County, CASA has been a program of YWCA Clark County since 1982.

Appointed by the court, CASA volunteers advocate for the best interest of children who have come into the dependency system as a result of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. Information and recommendations provided by the CASA volunteer assist the court in making crucial decisions about the child’s immediate needs and long-term permanency.

Volunteers are asked to commit to at least 2 years with the program so they can provide consistency for the child and stay with the case until the child is with returned safely to their parents or placed in a safe, permanent home. For many children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives.
