Was there ever a time in your life when you needed someone to stand up for you? Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA, provides a powerful voice for abused, neglected, and drug-endangered children. Today, almost 200 children live in foster care in Lincoln County. In an overburdened system, these children risk slipping through the cracks and suffering from further abuse. CASA volunteers have the power to prevent this tragic reality. These dedicated, highly-trained community members serve as fact finders for the judge by investigating the background of each assigned case. They speak for the child in the courtroom, representing the child’s best interests, and work to move the child as quickly and effectively as possible through the system in order to be reunited the family or into a safe, permanent home.
