Dyer-Lake CASA is a program dedicated to recruiting and training community volunteers to represent abused and neglected children in the juvenile court system. An official part of the judicial proceedings, CASA volunteers are appointed by a juvenile judge to work alongside attorneys and social workers to speak for the best interests of an abused or neglected child. By handling only one or two cases at a time, a CASA volunteer has time to thoroughly explore the history and circumstances of each assigned case.
