Our mission at CASA of Oklahoma County is to provide trained court appointed volunteers who advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the Oklahoma County juvenile court system.
CASA provides a trained caring adult to advocate for the best interest of children who have been removed from their home due to abuse or neglect. CASA volunteers get to know the children and communicate with all parties in the case and people in the child’s life in order to provide complete information and sound recommendations to the court. As “the eyes and ears” of the judge, the CASA volunteer offers a neutral, third-party opinion to the court, one that is unbiased and child-focused.
Who We Serve
Annually, there are approximately 11,000 Oklahoma children in foster care. Our program serves the most difficult of the abuse and neglect cases in Oklahoma County. Although these cases are under the jurisdiction of our county, the children may be placed in foster homes all across the state.
