Atlantic Area C.A.S.A. is a nonprofit organization where citizen volunteers advocate for abused and neglected children.
According to state law, a C.A.S.A. or Guardian Ad Litem, should be appointed to each child who is found deprived by a juvenile judge. However, there is a lack of volunteers in the Atlantic Judicial Circuit.
