Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Baltimore, Inc.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Baltimore recruits, trains, and supervises volunteers appointed to individual foster children by the Baltimore City Juvenile Court to provide written, objective recommendations to the Court, to serve as a consistent adult presence, and to monitor that child's well-being. 

CASA of Baltimore commits itself to providing a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA volunteer) to every Baltimore City foster child. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) are volunteers who are appointed by a Judge to provide a consistent and caring adult to ensure that their assigned child's educational, medical, social service and mental health needs are understood, that the Court hears what is in the child's best interest, and that these children have hope for the future. 

The CASA program model is one that ensures that children's best interests are provided to the Court by an independent, objective party. The CASA Volunteer is given the authority by the Court to do a comprehensive review of the child's situation, to develop a relationship and give time and attention to one child at a time. The CASA program model also ensures employment of professional staff to provide the necessary education, support, guidance and monitoring of the CASA volunteers.
