CASA: Court Appointed Special Advocates
Dr. Phil and Robin Help America’s Most Vulnerable Children
A child has rights. CASA volunteers fight for them. Abused and neglected children need more than the foster care system can provide. As long time supporters, Dr. Phil and Robin know that a CASA volunteer is an essential, proven solution for a successful outcome for children in the foster care and court system. As Dr. Phil noted: “Success is now only a matter of scale, that’s why we are partnering with CASA to add 100,000 new supporters, volunteers and advocates.”
CASA volunteers have helped more than two million children, but there are thousands more waiting. We need your support in reaching and exceeding our goal of 100,000 new voices, through donating money or time.
Dr. Phil and Robin are the official spokespersons for CASA, the National Court Appointed Special Advocate Association. It is CASA's mission to support and promote court-appointed volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children so that they can thrive in safe, permanent homes. You don't have to have a specialized education or background; your desire to help abused and neglected children find safe, permanent homes is enough.

CASA's goal is to help an additional 100,000 children beyond those we already serve. This is just one step along the way to providing a CASA volunteer for every child who needs one. It is a very ambitious goal, and they cannot do it alone.
"By either becoming a trained CASA volunteer or donating money, you can make a huge difference in the lives of abused and neglected children. Let's get involved and keep these kids from falling through the cracks. Please help us with that," says Dr. Phil and Robin.
