Community OrganizationsLegal Services
Blue Ridge CASA for Children is a nonprofit organization operating in the Blue Ridge region of Virginia, focusing on advocating for the best interests of children involved in court proceedings due to abuse or neglect. As a local CASA program, it recruits and trains volunteers to serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates, appointed by judges to ensure the well-being, safety, and permanency of children within the child welfare system. These volunteers work closely with professionals in the legal and social work fields, conducting investigations, attending court hearings, and providing crucial information to assist judges in making informed decisions about the children's futures.
The program's volunteers undergo specialized training to understand the complexities of the child welfare system, legal processes, and the unique needs of the children they advocate for. Blue Ridge CASA actively engages with the local community to raise awareness about issues related to child abuse and neglect. By collaborating with other organizations and agencies, the program seeks to make a positive impact on the lives of vulnerable children in the Blue Ridge region.
