COURT APPOINTED SPECIAL ADVOCATES CASA-NYC
Volunteer to help a child in foster care

50 Broadway
31st Floor
New York, NY  10004

For more than 28 years, NYC Family Court Judges have been assigning the most difficult cases to CASA. CASA's trained and supervised volunteers - more than 100 strong - represent the child's best interests in court. CASA volunteers conduct thorough research on the background of the case, reviewing documents and interviewing all parties involved. They report to the court, raising issues of concern that may interfere with a child's best interests and providing information that will help the judge make an informed decision. CASA volunteers can also play a pivotal role in assuring that a child or family is receiving services the court has ordered, such as physical or mental health services, substance abuse counseling or special education. During the life of a case, the CASA volunteer monitors the child's situation to assure he or she remains safe. The volunteer may be the only constant in the child's life as he or she moves through the bureaucratic maze of the child welfare system.
