Lee County CASA also known as ‘court appointed special advocates’ and a program of Twin Cedars Youth and Family Services and the Alabama CASA Network, Inc., provide excellent training and supervision for their volunteers, enabling them to assist the courts and effectively advocate for children in crisis. Lee County CASA’s ‘Keeping Family Connections’ program offers a safe, comfortable, supervised setting for children to interact with their families, increasing the chances that they will be successfully reunited.
