sc_casa-logoWelcome to the Shelby County CASA/GAL Program

It is our mission to recruit, train, guide, monitor and maintain volunteer CASA’s (Court Appointed Special Advocates), who are appointed by the Juvenile Court as the child’s guardian to represent and protect the best interests of abused, neglected, and dependent children in court.

The program is composed of three staff members and roughly 20 volunteers that are representing the children’s best interest and are the “eyes and ears” of juvenile court.

Feel free to contact us if you have questions about our program and/or if you are interested in volunteering.
