Henrico County Court Appointed Special Advocates, Inc. (“Henrico CASA”) is a nonprofit organization committed to advocating for the best interests of children involved in the juvenile court process.  The Henrico CASA program recruits, screens, trains, and supervises volunteers dedicated to representing the needs of abused and neglected children, children in juvenile dependency proceedings, and children in need of services or supervision.  The volunteers promote safe, permanent homes for all children and seek to educate the community concerning the needs of abused and neglected children.

 
The plight of children in foster care and the family court system is one of our biggest human dilemmas.  Henrico CASA believes that all children have the fundamental right to be safe, to be treated with dignity and respect, and to grow up in the embrace of a loving family.  Through training community volunteers, our program harvests the power of many to economically serve children involved in the courts due to abuse and neglect.  Our advocates investigate the child’s situation and represent their best interest through the life of the case ensuring it is brought to a swift and appropriate conclusion.

CASA Superhero Run, Kids' Run & Family Fun 

 

Every child needs a hero, but abused children need superheroes! 

Because of you, our Seventh Annual Superhero Run on April 30th was a tremendous success, with 569 registered runners and their families joining us for the 5K race, Kids’ Run, and family fun activities – we generated more than $55,000 in revenue!  The proceeds will help sustain our CASA program as we provide advocates for abused and neglected children in Henrico County.  Our success at the Superhero Run allows us to meet the needs of all children referred to our programs and help them find safe, permanent homes as soon as possible.
