We’re delighted you’re interested in our organization! Community engagement is what helps nonprofits like us thrive. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of the Mid-Shore believes every child who’s been abused, neglected, or abandoned deserves to have a dedicated advocate speaking up for their best interest in court, at school, and in our community. To accomplish this, we educate and empower diverse community volunteers who work to ensure each child’s needs remain a priority in an overburdened child welfare system. Our ultimate goal is to advocate until each child is living in a safe, permanent home.

- About Us -

We are CASA of the Mid-shore

Serving Talbot, Dorchester, Queen Anne’s, & Kent Counties

CASA of the Mid-Shore advocates for children under court protection due to serious risk factors, such as abuse, neglect, or abandonment, to ensure their right to thrive in a safe, permanent home. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) make assessments and recommendations to judges regarding the best interest of their appointed children. CASAs attempt to identify the specific needs of each child for the court, advocate for service provision to meet those needs, and assist in seeking a permanent resolution for each child’s life as quickly and safely as possible.

How to get involved

Our Volunteer program

CASA is NOT your typical volunteer role….and that’s okay… We’re not looking for typical volunteers. Each Court Appointed Special Advocate is a trained, dedicated adult volunteer who speaks up to ensure each child’s individual needs remain a priority in an overburdened child welfare system. We are currently accepting applications.

A message

From our executive director

Robin Davenport Headshot | Executive Director, CASA of the Mid-Shore

“I thank you for your interest in our organization and invite you to share our vision of improving the lives of vulnerable children.

CASA of the Mid-Shore serves children referred by the Circuit Courts in Talbot, Dorchester, Queen Anne’s and Kent Counties. We are committed to serving as many children as possible who have been maltreated and who desperately need someone to stand by their side to speak up for their needs, safety, and permanence. Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers do just that, and it makes a world of difference.

To those of you who support our work, I offer heartfelt thanks for caring about our communities’ children. Your thoughtfulness makes a difference not only today, but also for the future health of the children and for our region.

Please feel free to contact me at 410-822-2866 if you would like additional information regarding our services to children and families.

Warm regards,

Robin Davenport Executive Director
