About CASA of Westmoreland County
CASA of Westmoreland, Inc., is a volunteer-based organization
providing a voice in the courts on behalf of abused and neglected
children in Westmoreland County. The recommendations of these
volunteers assist the courts in determining the child’s placement in
safe, permanent and nurturing homes.
CASA of Westmoreland, Inc. (Court Appointed
Special Advocates) was initiated by a group of community members, led
by Family Court Judge Christopher Feliciani, who recognized the need
for a CASA program to advocate for the most vulnerable members of
Westmoreland County’s community. Judge Feliciani believed that CASA
would be the best solution for the then 330 children living in foster
care due to severe abuse and/or neglect. This initiative led to the
appointment of a steering committee, and then a Board of Directors.
With support from the Westmoreland County Commissioners and many
community members, CASA of Westmoreland, Inc. was incorporated in 2006
and recognized as a 501 (c) 3 organization, and opened its doors to
start advocating for children.
