What does Michigan CASA do? Michigan CASA is a nonprofit organization which establishes and supports the 27 affiliate programs across the State that recruit, screen, train, and supervise CASA volunteers. Michigan CASA is committed to maintaining a network of well-administered, affiliate programs that operate independently with mutual accountability, resulting in the highest level of advocacy for all of Michigan’s abused and neglected children.
What does CASA stand for? A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is a trained community volunteer appointed by a judge to speak up for the best interests of an abused, neglected, or abandoned child. Bringing urgency to a child’s needs both in and out of a courtroom, CASA volunteers advocate for safety, permanence and well-being for children through independent recommendations.
