Child Advocacy

Court Appointed Special Advocates® (CASA) are community volunteers who stand up and speak out to help abused and neglected children.

Our CASA program belongs to a network of nearly 950 community-based programs that recruit, train and support volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in courtrooms and communities.

Celebrating 30 Years of Child Advocacy

In the last 30 years, CASA of DuPage County has made a meaningful difference in the lives of children who have been abused or neglected and removed from their unsafe homes.  Because of our long-lasting partnership with the DuPage County court system that began in 1993, we are proud have provided advocacy to more than 3,000 children.  We started with 15 volunteer advocates who were the voices of 33 children.  Today, CASA has grown into a strong and impactful organization in the DuPage County community—with experience, expertise, and resources, now supporting over 400 children with 180 volunteer advocates in the past year.   We attribute our success to the profound generosity of our DuPage County community, allowing CASA of DuPage to provide every child a volunteer advocate, often the only stable adult in their lives.
