A child's life broken into pieces. . .

Through no fault of their own, these children are victims of abuse and neglect and face difficult circumstances.

They worry about where they will live, who will take care of them, and does anyone care.

Who is there to help them?

In Washington County, PA,
there is a group which is dedicated to help these children. . .
CASA for Kids.
CASA for Kids, Inc., is a local, non-profit organization that trains community members
to become Court Appointed Special Advocates who will speak up for the best interest of
abused and neglected children in the Courts of Washington County. 
 
CASA Advocate volunteers review records, research information and talk to
everyone involved in a child’s life and then present their recommendation
to the court as to what they feel is in the best interest of the child. 

Judges rely heavily on this fact-based testimony to make
a more informed decision on the child’s future.



Who will speak for the children?

As of May, 2016, there are 21 children on the waiting list of
CASA for Kids of Washington County, PA
hoping for someone to help them.

This is in addition to the 82 children in our county
already being served by current CASA Advocates.
Become a CASA Advocate volunteer and help give
these children a voice.
CASA Advocate training classes are forming soon.
