The mission of the Alabama CASA Network, Inc. is to equip and empower CASA programs to advocate for all of Alabama’s abused and neglected children.
Our vision is that all abused or neglected children will obtain a volunteer to advocate on their behalf so that they can thrive.
On the state level, Alabama CASA Network serves as the parent organization providing support, technical assistance, guidance and quality assurance to help local programs operate effectively and recruit the best possible volunteers. This includes:
Volunteer training and
Technical Assistance and Training for Local Programs

The Ten4Twelve Campaign is Alabama CASA’s “call to action” to engage communities and citizens across the state to be a difference maker. Our plan is to activate ambassadors to make a $10 a month commitment for a year. Proceeds will yield funds for local programs to enable volunteer recruitment, training and child advocacy awareness education that ultimately assists in serving abused, abandoned and neglected children.
