The mission of CASA: Advocates for Children of New York State (CASANYS) is to broadly support and develop local volunteer advocacy on behalf of the best interest of abused and neglected children.
CASA: Advocates for Children of New York State (CASANYS) is the State Association of a network of affiliate programs whose trained volunteers are appointed by Family Court judges to advocate for the best interest of children in cases of abuse and neglect.
These local programs, operating in more than 30 New York State counties, recruit, train and supervise nearly 905 volunteers advocating for children in the court and welfare system.
Through public awareness activities, program evaluation, training and technical assistance, information and funding support, CASA: Advocates for Children of New York State helps local CASA programs thrive.
The need for CASA advocates is more urgent than ever. Please help us protect a child by making a donation today.
