What we do
Court Appointed Special Advocates of North Sand Mountain provides abused, neglected or abandoned children with a highly trained volunteer to advocate for the child’s best interest before family courts in the counties of Jackson and DeKalb in the state of Alabama. Our volunteers are recruited, screened and trained by paid staff. our staff volunteers will then work in conjunction with the judges, lawyers and social workers to help ensure children receive appropriate care and support while navigating the court, child welfare and foster care systems.

CASA of North Sand Mountain advocated for 211 children in 2021 in Jackson and DeKalb County. Two months into 2022, the program is already advocating for 89 children in the court system. Currently, the agency employs just two staff members to recruit, train, review reports, supervise volunteers and attend court. Additional funding will secure the crucial support staff to better assist volunteers who advocate for abused and neglected children here in your community. More than 14,000 of Alabama’s most vulnerable children are attending court hearing, adjusting to new homes and navigating the child welfare system every day. CASA volunteers are trained to advocate for the best interests of these children.
