CASA of Harrison, Marion and Panola Counties is a non-profit organization which provides trained, court-appointed volunteers to serve as advocates for the best interests of abused and neglected children in Harrison, Marion, and Panola Counties.
To find a safe and permanent home for abused and neglected children.
CASA of Harrison County is part of a national volunteer movement that began in 1977 in Seattle. Judge David Soukoup decided he needed to know more about the children whose lives were in his hands. He asked community volunteers to act as a “voice in court” for children involved in the child welfare system. These Court Appointed Special Advocates® (CASAs) were able to provide the detailed information he needed to ensure the child and their family had the resources needed to heal and thrive. Since 1977, the CASA program has spread across the nation.
