CASA of Kent County, Inc. is a non-profit program. The primary focus of the program is to serve abused and neglected children in child protective proceedings by appointing screened, trained community volunteers to advocate in the best interest of children who are temporary or permanent wards of the court. CASA volunteers serve to present information to the court, reduce the time a child spends in ...out-of-home care, and provide continuity for the child by having at least one person who is involved with the case from the beginning until the end. Other goals of the program are to increase public awareness of abuse and neglect and its effect on children and society; to increase community involvement; and to fill the gap between the ideal deliveries of services as expressed in the legislation and practical constraints.
