CASA of Baltimore is supported in part by a CASA Grant from the Maryland Judiciary, Administrative Office of the Courts, Dept. of Family Administration and is a member of the National CASA Association.

Best practice and standards set by the National CASA Association and the Maryland State Administrative Office of the Courts requires that CASA programs provide one professional supervisor for every 30 active volunteers and each volunteer provides service to one child or sibling group. The income to the program addresses the cost of volunteer recruitment, screening, training and professional supervision in compliance with these standards.
