Make a difference in a childs life and Volunteer!
A CASA is the one person involved in a childs troubled life who can be the voice of common sense. The child welfare system needs that from CASA, to remind us that the hundreds of case numbers and hearings and pleadings and policies are all about one thing, the children. It's about a real live, breathing, feeling, and often hurting child.

Everyday Heroes highlights CASA Volunteers making a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children. It provides a rare opportunity to hear directly from children about their homes before and after a CASA volunteer came into their lives.

The Payne County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Association is a nonprofit organization, which advocates for the best interest of abused and neglected children involved in the court system. The goal of the Association is to provide professional staff support to Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteers to ensure that children receive sound advocacy. The Association supports the development, growth and continuation of the CASA program in order to recruit, train, and supervise volunteers to serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates for abused and neglected children in juvenile deprived hearings.
CASA volunteers advocate for necessary services for the children and early permanency planning because all children have a right to a permanent, safe home. In situations where it is not possible for children to have a permanent home, the CASA volunteer advocates for services that will provide the children protection and a minimum sufficient level of care.
