Welcome to Friends of CASA – Hawaii
We are an all-volunteer
Our mission is to provide support for the volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate’s Programs for abused and neglected children in Hawaii.
Our primary focus is to assist in recruiting and retention of volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates in Hawaii.
Our goal is to ensure that every child in Hawaii who needs a volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate has one.
To Raise awareness about the extent of child abuse and neglect in our state.
To Educate the public about the serious negative impact that abuse and neglect has on children.
To Inform the public about the volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate’s programs in Hawaii and encourage people to volunteer.
To Encourage volunteers who are already trained as Court Appointed Special Advocates to remain active in the program by developing a retention plan and support network.
There are not enough CASA volunteers in Hawaii to provide for the needs of the abused and neglected children in Hawaii. These children have lost their parents or other caregivers, not because of something the children did, but because their parents or caregivers cannot or will not take care of them.
