According to the national CASA website, 60% of children in need do not have a CASA volunteer.
The annual cost of child abuse and neglect to taxpayers is over $33 billion as of 2012, but the cost in human potential is even greater, reaching almost $50 billion in indirect costs. Studies show there is a very good chance many of the children will end up juvenile delinquents or adult criminals.
Enter the CASA concept. The Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program was created in 1997 to ensure that the abuse and neglect that these children originally suffered at home doesn’t continue as abuse and neglect at the hands of the system.
