                              A Member of the National CASA Association
         Serving the Children of the 12th Judicial District Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court
The mission of Chesterfield CASA is to promote safe, permanent homes for abused
   and neglected children by providing trained volunteers to advocate for them
            throughout their involvement in the juvenile court process.

Program History

Chesterfield CASA was initiated in July of 1996 as a collaborative community initiative. The
organizing committee consisted of the juvenile court judges, representatives from the local
Community Service Board, the Department of Social Services, the Chesterfield County Police
Department, a school board member, a private attorney, a private therapist, a local bank officer,
and a group of concerned citizens.

Their concern focused on the rising number of cases involving child abuse and neglect brought to
the attention of the courts and social services in our community. They felt that a CASA program
would be an appropriate response to increasing numbers of abuse and neglect cases,
overburdened social service caseloads, and an ever-increasing need for representation in child
abuse cases.

The primary goal of the program is to use trained volunteer advocates to work towards finding
safe, permanent homes and treatment services for victims of child abuse. To that end,
Chesterfield CASA, Inc. was formed as a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization. Several of the
founding committee members continue to be involved with the CASA program.
