Our Goal

The goal of Lackawanna County CASA is to prevent abused, neglected, and abandoned children from becoming lost in the Juvenile Dependency system and working to find them safe, permanent homes as soon as possible. We work carefully to match a CASA volunteer with a child to ensure that the child’s best interest is served.

CASA volunteers are appointed by judges, in a court order, to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the legal and social service system or languish in an inappropriate foster home.

CASA volunteers stay with each case until it is closed, and the child is reunified with family or placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence—the one adult who cares only for them.

Our Mission

Advocate for abused and/or neglected children; give them hope, support and encouragement; enhance their resiliency; and ensure that their voices are heard as the juvenile court system seeks safe, permanent, and nurturing homes.
