Tulsa CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is a non-profit organization which trains volunteers to speak in the best interest of abused and neglected children in the court system. Their purpose is to ensure kids in high-risk situations are given advocates to speak out for them in hopes of achieving the best possible outcome.
The CASA volunteers represent children in the court system by getting to know their circumstances and speaking on their behalf in court. The volunteers may meet with the child’s teachers, family, DHS workers, and therapist, then offer their recommendation to the judge.
A CASA volunteer plays a significant role in the lives of these children. Often, these children are moved from home to home and the CASA volunteer may be the only consistent person speaking for them. The CASA volunteer will remain in contact with the child until their case is closed, and may be the only person the child feels they can trust during this process.
If you wish to make a difference in the life of a child, please reach out to Tulsa CASA at (918) 584-5740 and visit their website at tulsacasa.org.
