CASA serves children who, for their own protection, have been removed from their homes and placed in foster care. Judges refer the most serious cases of child abuse and neglect to CASA so that one volunteer can consistently spend time with one child, building a relationship and ensuring that each child is receiving the support and attention he or she needs and deserves while going through the foster care process.

Volunteer advocates are a powerful voice for children, advising the court about what the child needs and wants. While providing emotional support and the stability and nurturing every child deserves, they make recommendations that are in the child's best interest.

If you are interested in volunteering and becoming an advocate for Garland, Grant or Hot Spring Counties' neglected children contact our office at 501-321-9269 or info@trilakescasa.org

Judge Vicki Cook

Tri-Lakes CASA is saddened to learn of the passing of Vicki Cook. She worked tirelessly to aid, support,
and promote the community she lived and believed in. Those of us who knew her and were recipients
of her kind and selfless acts will forever be grateful for those memories. She was a beautiful, kind soul.
Judge Cook is credited as the founder of our organization here in Hot Springs and Garland County. She
never missed an opportunity to talk to anyone who would listen about the positive impact of CASA.
Without her vision, Tri-Lakes CASA would not be able to be the voice of so many children in our area.
No one can ever replace Vicki Cook. Her absence will be felt by all of those she touched. Please join us
in remembering such an outstanding leader and visionary.

” A great soul serves everyone all the time. A great soul never dies. It brings us together again and
again.” – Maya Angelou
