About CASA

The First Circuit Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program is a private, non-profit organization founded in 2001. It began development as a “Steering Committee” consisting of members from the Davison County Child Protection Team in 2000.

The mission of First Circuit Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is to assure a safe, permanent, nurturing home for every abused and/or neglected child by providing a trained volunteer to advocate for them in the court system.

The First Circuit CASA Program has 60 active volunteers and 3 staff dedicated to making a powerful impact in the lives of abused and neglected children.

Additionally, there are five other CASA programs in South Dakota, a State CASA organization, and the National CASA/GAL Association to which First Circuit CASA is a member.
