Who We Are

Promoting and protecting the best interests of abused and neglected children involved in court proceedings through the advocacy efforts of trained volunteers. Serving children in the 4th Judicial Circuit:  Butte, Lawrence, Meade, Corson, Perkins, Harding, Ziebach, and Dewey Counties.

Volunteer

When a child enters the child welfare system because his or her home is no longer safe due to abuse or neglect, a judge may appoint a committed volunteer to advocate for the best interest of the child in court and other settings. That volunteer is called a Court Appointed Special Advocate.

Donate

A donation to NHCASA is an investment in a child and the community. With your gift, you can help the CASA program to provide the very best volunteer advocacy for children removed from their homes due to abuse and/or neglect. The children appreciate your support!

Being an advocate is a tough job, but it is a good day when successful reunifications occur between a child and parent.Dear N,Yours was the first case assigned to me after I was sworn in as a Court Appointed Advocate in November 2019. Seeing you monthly, being immersed in your world, and advocating for you has been an honor beyond words.This morning, a judge listened as myself and others shared about the progress your mom has made in the past year and a half. Your mom has fought for you in word in action, going above and beyond everything the court has asked. She has stepped up, risen above, and even inspired other parents with children in the system.Today, you get to go home, sweet girl! You get to grow up with your mom, play with your animals, and be back in the place you’re most familiar with. You get to experience what reunification looks like. Your family gets to receive ongoing support to keep you all healthily together. You’re living the truth that family preservation, when safely possible, is the best case scenario.I watched your mom break down in tears of joy, barely able to catch her breath about the news of your return. The wait is finally over. As I continue onto new cases, I will carry the hope of your story with me. I hope for many more moms like yours – moms that take their pasts to change their presents in order to provide redeemed futures. I’ll never stop praying for you.Welcome home, N. It’s where you belong.With love,AnnieCredit: Instagram.com/anniemarekbarta#reunification #courtappointedspecialadvocate #fostercare #thisisfostercare ... See MoreSee Less
