The mission of CASA of Harrison County is to provide specially selected and trained
community volunteers to advocate for abused and neglected children in the pursuit of
safe and permanent homes.
Will You Help Us Reach Every Child?
You can stand up for abused and neglected children by making a donation to CASA of Harrison County. Children living with the effects of abuse and neglect have a right to be heard. Last year, CASA volunteers around the country were the voice for nearly 240,000 children. Unfortunately, each year there are many more children in need of a CASA, but due to lack of trained CASA volunteers they did not receive their voice. You can help change that in Harrison County by supporting CASA of Harrison County.
What is the role of CASA volunteer?
A CASA volunteer advocates for the best interest of an abused or neglected child by gathering and researching background information to provide a recommendation based on facts to the Judge so a sound decision can be determined on permanent or temporary placement of the child. It is always the goal of the courts and CASA for reunification whenever possible. However, all recommendations are based on what is in the best interest of the child.
