What is a CASA? From Pennsyvania by way of Florida

What Florida Divorce * Child Custody * Domestic Violence Law Lawyer writes in Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children in a Nutshell applies to Indiana:
"A CASA concentrates on a relative handful of children and follows each assigned child closely. The CASA investigates in-depth and reports to the court as to what rulings he or she believes are in the child’s best interests.

One judge describes a CASA as “an extra pair of eyes and ears for the court”.

In Lancaster County, CASA volunteers stand ready to work. But like many volunteer chapters, they lack one thing - funding"
