How CASA Helps Children…

The Mission of Louisiana CASA Association is to support local programs in their efforts to ensure that abused and neglected children in the Louisiana legal system have a competent and caring volunteer advocate through quality, local CASA programs.

The heart of our program is the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), a specially trained and supervised community volunteer, appointed by a Judge. CASAs help to secure safe and permanent homes for abused and neglected children by investigating and monitoring cases involving children in foster care.

CASA volunteers are men and women who want to help the children in their community. They come from all walks of life…have a variety of backgrounds… young and old…working and retired…are all volunteers...and they all have the same desire…to make a difference in the life of an abused or neglected child.

The Oaks Kiwanis Club collects new and wrapped Christmas presents at it's annual Christmas Party to donate to CASA.
