Court Appointed Special Advocates of the Great Lakes Bay Region

Every child has the right to a safe, permanent and caring home. Yet, according to the Department of Human Services, each year, over 300 children live in foster care or with relatives because it is not safe to return home.

Most of these children will end up in court.  Their only “crime” is that they have been victims.

CASA of the Great Lakes Bay Region (Court Appointed Special Advocates) are specially trained volunteers who provide a powerful voice in the Bay and Saginaw County court systems for children who have been removed from their home because of abuse or neglect. Click here for CASA Brochure.

CASA of the Great Lakes Bay Region’s mission is to provide a powerful voice that advocates for a safe, permanent and loving environment for children who are in Saginaw County’s court system because of abuse or neglect. It is accredited by National CASA.

CASA is a program of the CAN Council Great Lakes Bay Region, and was started with support from the Junior League of Saginaw Valley, United Way of Saginaw County, Saginaw Community Foundation, Harvey Randall Wickes Foundation, Frank N. Andersen Foundation, and generous individuals within the community.
