Henrico CASA is a private, nonprofit organization that works with the Henrico Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court to advocate for children who have been abused or neglected. Working typically 10 to 15 hours per month, Henrico CASA’s volunteer advocates gather information on a child’s circumstances to supplement information provided to the court.
