Every Child Has Rights Help us Defend those Rights around Michigan
What does Michigan CASA do? Michigan CASA is a nonprofit organization which establishes and supports the 26 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.
The mission of Michigan CASA is to speak for the best interest of abused and neglected children who are involved in the family courts by promoting and supporting the development of quality CASA programs in the state of Michigan.
