The National CASA Association is a network of nearly 1,000 programs that work to recruit, train and support court-appointed volunteers to stand up for the rights of abused and neglected children. Volunteer advocates offer judges and officials with the critical information they need to ensure that each child’s rights and needs are being attended to while in foster care. For many abused children, a CASA volunteer is the only constant adult presence in their lives.

CASA For Kids of Monongalia and Preston Counties was founded in 1994 and is currently serving over 100 children. Our volunteers spend countless hours advocating for children who are victims of abuse and neglect. It is our primary intent to advocate for the best interests of abused, neglected, and exploited children through the use of trained community volunteers, community education projects, and federal and state legislation.
