CAJA of Madison County
Children Deserve a Safe and Happy Home
There are over 2,000 reports of child abuse or severe neglect in Madison county every year!

CAJA volunteers are appointed by judges as Officers of the Court to objectively investigate child abuse and neglect cases. CAJA volunteers come from all professions - teachers, engineers, auto workers, homemakers, college students. They are united in the belief that every child deserves a safe, permanent home, as quickly as possible.

MORE THAN 500 MADISON COUNTY CHILDREN ARE IN THE FOSTER CARE SYSTEM. DUE TO FUNDING LIMITATIONS, WE WERE ONLY ABLE TO HELP 20% OF THESE CHILDREN. SHOULDN'T EVERY DAY BE A GOOD DAY WHEN YOU ARE A KID? YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

The Children Need Your Help!
CAJA is the only volunteer organization that empowers everyday citizens as officers of the court. In an overburdened social welfare system, abused and neglected children often slip through the cracks among hundreds of current cases. CAJA volunteers change that. Appointed by judges, CAJA volunteers typically handle just one case at a time—and commit to staying on that case until the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. While others may come and go, CAJA volunteers provide that one constant that children need in order to thrive.

ABOUT US
The CAJA/CASA Story
The Madison County program was started by Judge Hartwell Lutz in 1987 after he attended a judicial conference where the CASA concept was presented. He decided to bring the idea home to Madison County.
In 1988, the first formal volunteer training took place. Judge Lutz secured a grant in 1989 and instituted the current formal program with a permanent director and twice-yearly volunteer training.

OUR PARTNERS
National CASA's success relies on many, including a large network of dedicated community members, corporations and government funders. From our volunteers who serve as the voice of children who are otherwise unheard; to our donors, corporate sponsors and foundations that make it possible for us to grow as we serve; to the United States Department of Justice that provides ongoing support to help us reach our goal of serving every child who needs a CASA volunteer—we are deeply grateful for your generosity and the relationships we have developed over the years.
