About Franklin County CASA
Franklin County CASA is part of a much larger network. We are just 1 of 950 CASA programs across the nation.
The idea of CASA began in 1977, by a Seattle juvenile court judge, David Soukup. He was concerned about making life changing decisions regarding abused and neglected children, with insufficient information. He decided a change was needed and started a program where community volunteers would be trained to speak up for the best interest of children in court ensuring a safe permanent home for them.
