CASA of the Mid-Shore
Phone Number (410) 822-2866
Address 1 S. Washington Street, Suite 2, Easton, MD 21601
Website www.casamidshore.org
Description CASA of the Mid-Shore is a private, non-profit organization created to advocate for children who are under the protection of the circuit court because of abuse, neglect or abandonment. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) are officers of the court and, as such, are ordered to make assessments and recommendations to the judge regarding the best interest of the child to whom they are appointed. CASAs attempt to identify the specific needs of each child for the court, advocate for service provision to meet those needs, and assist in seeking a permanent resolution for each child’s life as quickly and safely as possible.

Court Appointed Special Advocates are adult volunteers from the community who are screened, trained, and supervised by professional staff members. When a CASA volunteer is appointed by a judge to a child’s case, he or she is responsible for taking the time to learn as much as possible about the child. CASA volunteers search for information that might be helpful to the court by talking with parents, teachers, relatives, physicians, therapists, attorneys, social workers, and others. They work closely with all agencies involved with each child. Most importantly, the CASAs get to know the child, and frequently become one of the most consistent adults in the child’s life. Then, the CASAs provide a written report to the court with recommendations as to what is in each child’s best interest.
