CASA of Central Louisiana's Mission:

CASA of Central Louisiana works to provide quality advocacy and a strong voice to abused and neglected children in Natchitoches, Red River, and Sabine parishes. CASA, through recruitment, training and supervising volunteers-serves as the eyes and ears of the judge in working collaboratively to ensure that each child’s best interest is met.

Children with a CASA

  • Are more likely to find a safe, permanent home
  • Are more likely to be adopted
  • Are half as likely to re-enter foster care
  • Are substantially less likely to spend time in long-term foster care
  • Are more likely to succeed in school

Stand up for abused and neglected children in Natchitoches, Red River, and Sabine Parish. 

What is CASA?

  • Court Appointed Special Advocates are trained community volunteers appointed by a judge to advocate for abused and neglected children.
  • CASA volunteers act as the eyes and ears of the court, making independent, objective recommendations regarding the child’s best interest.
  • As children enter the foster care system, an advocate is assigned to monitor the child’s case as it proceeds through the welfare and judicial system.
