CASA Kids - Who Are Our Children?

"So long as little children are allowed to suffer, there is no true love in this world."
 - Isadora Duncan       

CASA children range in age from newborns to teenagers. They are from all races and varied socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. Nevertheless, each one deserves a safe and permanent home.

Each year in the Charlottesville/Albemarle region, hundreds of children are part of a real-life courtroom drama. These children have committed no crime. Rather, they are victims of violence, psychological torment, sexual abuse and severe neglect.

Unable to rely on parents, these unfortunate children find themselves depending on social services and the court to protect their well-being, and sometimes, their lives. While the courts will step in to protect them, abused and neglected children are often afraid or unable to speak for themselves and their needs.

A judge has the important task of deciding where these children will spend their future. Should these children be placed in foster care, remain with their families, or be adopted? These are not simple questions for a judge to answer. In order to reach the best decision for a child, a judge must know all the facts about a child's situation. That is why Piedmont CASA was established.
