Yellowstone CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is a group of community volunteers who speak up for abused and neglected children in Yellowstone County. The CASA concept is based on the commitment that every child has the right to a safe, permanent home. CASA volunteers are appointed by the courts to gather accurate and complete information about the child’s circumstances, serve as the child’s advocate in all facets of the child protection system, and make objective recommendations in the best interest of the child. Volunteers receive training and work with just one or two cases at a time. They make a commitment to spend 5-15 hours a month for at least 18 months. CASA volunteers make a difference, one child at a time.
