Children need a voice
Court Appointed Special Advocates can be that voice. An adult they can count on to be there for them! Recently Michael Piraino CEO of National CASA was a guest of Anderson Cooper and Diane Sawyer. Watch here.

PA CASA
The Pennsylvania CASA Association is the statewide non-profit organization that works to develop and support local CASA programs. CASA programs are organized for a specific juvenile court jurisdiction. Today there are 20 local programs serving 22 court jurisdictions. The local CASA programs may be county operated, represent one of several programs under an umbrella agency or be set up as an independent non-profit organization. Read More...

WHY CASA
Each day in Pennsylvania, children are physically, sexually and emotionally abused and neglected. When the child welfare system intervenes as it must, these children find themselves removed from their homes and in a court where a maze of caseworkers, therapists, attorneys, hearing officers and judges must decide where and with whom they will live. CASA came about because too often these crucial decisions are made without sufficient information, not in the child’s best interest. In 2010 there were 33 Pennsylvania children that died as a direct result of child abuse while 24,615 reports of suspected child abuse were made. Learn more about the scope of the problem.
