Additional Information
Lower Shore CASA advocates for children who are under the protection of circuit courts in Somerset, Wicomico, and Worcester counties due to abuse, neglect or abandonment. The program trains everyday people to become Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs). CASAs are officers of the court and, as such, conduct independent investigations and make recommendations to the judge regarding the best interest of the child to whom they are appointed. Lower Shore CASA is committed to serving as many children as possible who have been maltreated and who desperately need someone to stand by their side to speak up for their needs, safety, and permanence. Our trained volunteers advocate ensuring that children finding themselves in the child welfare system end up in safe, permanent, and loving homes.
