OJJDP FY 2012 Court-Appointed Special Advocates Training and Technical Assistance

The Victims of Child Abuse Act of 1990, as amended (Public Law 101-647), contemplates that all abused and neglected children involved in dependency proceedings receive timely, sensitive, and effective advocacy.

The Act directs that a court-appointed special advocate shall be available to every


victim of child abuse or neglect in the United States that needs such an advocate.

The Court-Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Program ensures that abused and neglected children receive high quality representation in dependency court hearings.

The successful applicant will provide information, technical assistance, and training to volunteer advocates who represent abused and neglected children in dependency hearings and to other child welfare system stakeholders at the local, state, regional, and national levels.

This program is authorized by the Victims of Child Abuse Act, 42 U.S.C.
