How effective have CASA programs been?

Research suggests that children who have been assigned CASA volunteers tend to spend less time in court and less time within the foster care system than those who do not have CASA representation. Judges have also observed that children assigned to a CASA also have better chances of finding permanent homes than children not assigned to a CASA. Please call 765-423-9109 for more information.
