Child Advocates of Nevada Countyhttps://www.caofnc.org
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Nevada County is a program of Child Advocates of Nevada County. CASA works to provide well-trained, committed volunteers to advocate for the best interest of children who are going through the judicial dependency court process. Our goal is to decrease the maltreatment of children in our community. In support of this goal, we work to enhance the opportunity for these children to grow into healthy adults and break the chains of abuse and neglect. Each CASA volunteer provides one-on-one support to the child through participation in the judicial process, while advocating for the timely, permanent, and safe placement of the child. CASA creates public awareness of the children involved in the dependency process, and publicizes how the CASA program and volunteers provide a voice for these children.
