What is CASA of Caroline, Inc?

CASA of Caroline was started by a group of concerned citizens who recognized the need for someone to watch out for the best interest of foster care children in 2003. Spearheaded by then Circuit Court Judge J. Owen Wise, who had seen firsthand the positive results of CASA advocacy, CASA of Caroline became operational in September 2003. Many members of the original group became members of the Board of Directors. They remain committed to assuring that abused and neglected children are heard and provided with one consistent presence in their lives, a CASA advocate
