Additional Information

Our role is to advocate for abused and neglected children who are navigating their way through the court system. The mission is carried out through dedicated, trained volunteers, appointed by the court to speak up for the best interests of a child.

A Message from the Director

Thank you for your interest in Lower Shore CASA and for wanting to help some of the most vulnerable children in the Tri-County area. We strive to advocate for every child who is involved with the court system due to abuse or neglect. We want to provide each child with a volunteer, a voice, and the support she or he needs. CASA’s are the “eyes and ears of the court,” delivering objective information and recommendations that focus strictly on each child’s best interest. We celebrate when barriers to successful parenting come down and families are reunited. We also celebrate with children when they find a safe and permanent home and exit the temporary care of the state. We seek volunteers from all backgrounds to support positive outcomes for children! With your help and commitment, we can change a child’s story. Please contact us today for more information about how you can help.

-Jerrona Smith, Director
