Who We Are
Shoals CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) is committed to promoting awareness of child abuse and neglect within the Shoals area. We work diligently to provide trained volunteers to advocate for the best interest of children within the judicial system.
CASA programs assist the juvenile/family court in carrying out its role in the child protective services system. CASA volunteers are an investigative tool for juvenile dependency court cases. Often being the "eyes and ears of the court".
CASA is the only volunteer organization that empowers everyday citizens as officers of the court. In an overburdened social welfare system, abused and neglected children often slip through the cracks among hundreds of current cases. Each volunteer cares for 1-2 cases at a time to ensure that each child is receiving the attention they deserve.
