What is CASA of Allegany County?

CASA of Allegany County is located in Western Maryland. CASA-AC opened its doors in July 2013, and our first set of CASA volunteers were trained and appointed as Court Appointed Special Advocates in June 2014. The mission of CASA of Allegany County is to ensure that every foster child and youth in Allegany County has a safe and permanent home.

A Message From the Director

Thank you for your interest in CASA of Allegany County. Despite our rural location in Western Maryland, Allegany County has the second highest rate of child abuse and neglect per capita. CASA of Allegany County is committed that every foster child and youth in Allegany County will have a voice…a Court Appointed Special Advocate. As a new agency, we need your help. Please consider giving your time to make our mission a reality for every foster child and youth to have a safe and permanent home.

Misty Raines, Executive Director
