The Northern Hills Area CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) Program seeks to promote and protect the best interests of abused and neglected children involved in court proceedings through the advocacy efforts of trained volunteers.
The Northern Hills Area CASA (NHCASA) Program was started in 1986 by the presiding judge, the Honorable Judge, Warren Johnson, and a task force of community members. NHCASA is an affiliate of the National Court Appointed Special Advocate program and abides by its guidelines. Today more than 900 CASA programs are in operation, with over 70,000 volunteers.
NHCASA serves the Fourth Judicial Circuit advocating for children in Butte, Meade, Lawrence, Perkins, Harding, Corson, Ziebach, and Dewey counties.
