Inspiration to start a National CASA Program began when Seattle Juvenile Court Judge David W. Soukup in 1976 had insufficient information to make a life-changing decision for a 3-year-old who had suffered from child abuse. This is where the idea originated from: These children who had suffered from abuse and neglect, needed trained volunteers to speak on the child’s behalf.
