Helping to break the cycle of child abuse and neglect through advocacy and interaction.
In March 2000, CASA of the Seventh Judicial District Inc. was founded by a group of professionals and community members who wanted to make a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children.
Our first CASA training was held in April 2001, with our first volunteers graduating and being sworn in May 2001. On January 1, 2012, while working toward independent program status, CASA of the Four Corners, serving children within the 22nd Judicial District, was brought in under the umbrella of the 7th Judicial District. As of July 2016, CASA of the Four Corners became an independent agency.
Today, CASA's Supervised Exchange & Parenting Time program provides more then 900 visits a year in an environment that supports individual safety, accountability, and healthy relationships between children and their parents in conflicted custody or domestic violence cases.
Volunteer Statement: "I have never felt more important in my life. That my words made such a difference!"
