Danos Foundation Gives to Casa of Terrebonne

03-Apr-2019

By: Samantha Magee

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) of Terrebonne is one of the 2019 Danos GIVES grant recipients. The mission of CASA of Terrebonne is to be an independent and objective presence in the courts to speak for the best interest of abused and neglected children of Terrebonne Parish. They promote and support trained community volunteers to represent and help secure for each child a nurturing, safe and permanent home.


Children are continually coming into the state’s custody because of neglect and/or abuse, so CASA has an ongoing need for volunteers to advocate for these children. CASA’s goal is to have a volunteer advocating for every child that comes into care in Terrebonne parish. Funds from the Danos Foundation will support the Volunteer Training Project, which addresses the critical need for volunteers due to the quickly growing number of children on the waiting list for an advocate. With the support of a CASA advocate, more children will have the opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving home.
