CASA of Hampden County

Since 1977, Court-Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) have been speaking up for kids who can’t. CASA of Hampden County advocates for local children being placed in foster care or searching for permanent homes.

We Give Kids a Voice In The Courtroom

Thousands of abused and neglected children end up in the court system without a caring adult by their side.

Appointed by judges, CASA volunteers advocate for children who’ve been removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment.

CASA of Hampden County, founded by Judge Rebekah Crampton-Kamukala in 1989, protects vulnerable children like these throughout Springfield and Holyoke.

CASAs share critical information with judges that they may not otherwise see such as educational, medical, and therapy records. They meet with other adults involved in the case and make recommendations that protect the child’s mental and physical well-being.

In many cases, a CASA is the only consistent adult presence in a foster child’s life.

CASA-supported kids are more likely to find a safe, permanent home and succeed in school. They’re also half as likely to re-enter the foster care system.

The courtroom can be a scary, confusing place for a child. We’re working to make it a place of healing and new beginnings. CHD relies on donations to provide these vital services. Thank you for supporting child advocacy in Western Massachusetts.
