Lift Up a Child’s Voice – A Child’s Life

What is CASA?

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) volunteers are trained to speak up for the best interest of abused and neglected children in the courts. They are appointed by a judge to review records, research information and talk to everyone involved in a child’s case, making sure the child remains safe, until a permanent resolution is reached. There is no special experience required.

Who are we?

Mid-Ozark CASA serves the children of the 42nd Judicial Circuit Court. The program covers five rural counties in Missouri: Crawford, Dent, Iron, Reynolds and Wayne. Over 200 children in the circuit are in foster care at this time. The judge would like to see a CASA assigned to each child. The program is in the process of expanding so that more of these children can be served.
