The mission of CASA of Lafourche is to advocate for the abused and neglected children of our parish by training and supporting community volunteers to be their voices in court.
Each year thousands of children in Louisiana enter into complex social welfare and juvenile court proceedings through no fault of their own. They are innocent victims of abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment. They belong to no one, and to all of us, as they sit silently waiting for the courts to decide their future.
To assure that the best interest of these children is served, CASA of Lafourche recruits, trains and supports community volunteers to serve as a child's voice in court (Court Appointed Special Advocate).
