Court Appointed Special Advocates® (CASA) are community volunteers, just like you, who promote and protect the best interests of abused and neglected children.

Our CASA program belongs to a network of 951 community-based programs in the U.S. that recruit, train and support citizen-volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in courtrooms and communities.

Southeast CASA serves children in Yankton, Bon Homme, Clay, and Union counties in South Dakota. 

No other program provides free child advocacy services for abused and neglected children while they are in the foster care and court systems.

Your support is needed to ensure that every child who needs a CASA advocate will have one.

 

The Story of a CASA Child

One story exemplifies the impact that a CASA volunteer had on the decision made for a child. It is about a boy we'll call Gabe. 

Gabe had three older half-siblings who had been removed from the home as children and raised by relatives, not their mother. Then along came Gabe, who struggled every day to get what he needed. You see, Gabe’s mother has a severe alcohol and drug addiction problem and often relapsed after months of sobriety. Gabe had been in foster care a couple of times when he was younger, but he was returned to his mother’s home after several months. But things never seemed to stay at a good level for very long.
