Justice Matters: CASA Volunteers Bring Stability to Lives of Abused, Neglected Children

In the most recent “Justice Matters” column, Missouri Chief Justice Mary R. Russell addresses concern about an alarming rate of child abuse cases in Missouri and calls for awareness of the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program which has helped many abused and neglected children across the state.

Russell wrote in her column, “National research shows that children with CASA volunteers are substantially less likely to spend time in long-term foster care and are more likely to be adopted. They also do better in school. The work that CASA volunteers provide saves our state millions of dollars while protecting these vulnerable children.”
