CASA New Orleans is proud to be a member of a thriving non-profit community in New Orleans. Here are just a few of the collaborations and partners that we work with.
The Orleans Parish Juvenile Court serves the people of Orleans Parish through its handling of all juvenile matters, specifically: delinquency cases, juvenile status offenses, Child in Need of Care (CINC) proceedings, child support claims, adoptions, voluntary transfers of custody, termination of parental rights, and juvenile traffic tickets. OPJC appoints CASA New Orleans to CINC cases.
The Child Welfare Division works to meet the needs of Louisiana’s most vulnerable citizens. It includes Child Protection Investigation, Adoption, Foster Parenting, and more.
We are proud to be one of the 70 partner agencies funded by the United Way of Southeast Louisiana. By partnering with donors, employers, nonprofits, faith groups and government, United Way brings a coordinated approach to solving community problems.
