Welcome to CASA of Southern Connecticut

The mission of CASA of Southern Connecticut is to recruit, train, and support caring adults who serve as court-appointed volunteer advocates to safeguard the best interests of children who have experienced abuse or neglect in New Haven, New London, or Middlesex counties.

All over the United States, adults and children have been quarantined for weeks with people who hurt them.

CASA of Southern Connecticut is participating in the Great Give and #GiveTuesdayNow through the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. We ask folks to consider donating now and appreciate donations already received! Contributions are encouraged anytime, but unique donors by May 6 will help qualify us for matching incentives.

Like volunteering to be Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), this is a valuable way to support our work in the New Haven area, with opportunities across the state as well.

We are part of the National CASA/GAL Association for Children and Connecticut CASA Association networks.

Amid COVID-19 and during Volunteer Month and Child Abuse Prevention Month in April, Josiah Brown of CASA of Southern Connecticut discusses the CASA movement and volunteer action more broadly--in the New Haven Register/Hearst Connecticut Media.

Our training and advocacy are continuing, despite physical distancing.
