The vision of CASA of Mississippi is that each child in Mississippi who needs an advocate is able to have one. With more than 3800 cases in Mississippi each year, there’s a lot of need.
First, see which counties are already served by a local CASA program.
CASA of Mississippi exists to support new programs across the state. Programs often start with a motivated local director. The court must allow the CASA program to participate in youth court. Most judges have a very positive experience with this.
