North Star CASA

When a child enters the foster care system because his or her home is no longer safe, a judge may appoint a committed volunteer to help them.  This volunteer is called a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA).  CASA Volunteers are screened, highly trained and then appointed by a judge to represent and advocate for a child’s best interest in the child protection system.





The state can remove a child from a bad situation, but can’t be an effective guardian.


After completing a short training course, you can act as a child’s guardian.


Go to court a few times a year to make sure that the child’s best interests are being served.


Help make sure that the state’s actions are effective and kids don’t fall through the cracks.
