Our Berrien County CASA program is the first and only CASA program in Berrien County.

  • Each day over 275 children in Berrien County live in foster care due to extreme abuse or neglect.

  • In 2012 Berrien County had over 700 children confirmed victims of abuse-most under the age of 8 

  • CASA volunteers save hundreds of millions of dollars in child welfare costs alone. 

  • The annual survey of CASA programs shows that children with CASA volunteers spend 7.5 months less in foster care than children in the general foster care population. It costs the federal government $3,250 per month to keep a child in the foster care system.
