The mission of Chesterfield CASA is to promote safe, permanent homes for abused and neglected children by providing trained volunteers to advocate for them throughout their involvement in the juvenile court process.
As abused and neglected children navigate the legal and child welfare systems, their CASA volunteer is available to focus solely on their best interests. CASA volunteers work one-on-one with their assigned case and assist the Court in making sure each child has a safe, nurturing, and permanent home. The hallmark of CASA's work is a written report provided to the juvenile court. The information in these reports is given careful consideration by the judge before he/she makes decisions which will affect the child's safety and future development.
