Change A Child's Story

A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer, specially trained and supervised, is appointed by a Judge to speak up for a child in foster care. CASA volunteers help to secure safe and permanent homes for abused and neglected children by investigating and monitoring cases involving children in foster care.

Speaking up for Louisiana's children

Louisiana CASA is the statewide association for 17 local CASA programs serving 61 parishes. We work to connect each part of the CASA community and empower the local programs to perform at their highest level. At the local level, the programs recruit, train and supervise Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers to advocate for children involved in the child welfare system and improve their well-being. At the state level, Louisiana CASA provides support, training and services to help the local programs operate effectively.

Louisiana's CASA Volunteer of the Month
Deborah Jones, CASA of CENLA

When asked why she chose to become a volunteer, she said she wanted to make a difference in a child’s life and that CASA gives her that opportunity. As for advice for fellow CASA volunteers, Deborah says “don’t hesitate, be yourself, and never think a question you have may be trivial.”
