CASA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community based organization established in 1994 to assist and support immigrants of all nationalities. CASA works to enhance opportunities for immigrants through legal representation and education, and focuses its efforts on strengthening immigrant families while helping individuals achieve independence.
CASA was founded in 1994 to serve the immigrant community in South Florida, serving thousands of families in the last two decades. In the last ten (10) years we have seen a surge in the number of men, women and children who have been victims of violent crimes (including human trafficking) and domestic violence. In the last two months alone we have provided services to thirty (30) new families who have been victims of domestic violence and crimes. Their needs are great, ranging from family protective services to obtaining employment authorization to work and provide for their families. We strive to assist those who live in the shadows and in fear.
Remember that our office is always open to clarify any migratory doubt. You are the reason why CASA exists; therefore we would really appreciate it if you provide us your e-mail address to keep you informed about the most important community news occurring in Miami-Dade county as well as information of our events. We also want to ask you to follow us on Facebook.
As a nonprofit, our mission is to expand access to legal services, in order to meet your everyday legal needs. Depending on income and household size, you may qualify to receive our services at rates that are 50%-70% less than the Miami-Dade and Broward area market rate. We offer workable payment plans so you can afford the help you need.
When you come in for your first meeting, your lawyer will ask you a few simple questions and determine your eligibility.
CASA is dedicated to promoting empowerment of very low and moderate-income immigrant families helping them not only to obtain their legal status but also to acquire the knowledge to succeed in the United States. Once our clients and their families meet the legal requirements to be in this country, our Education Department is committed to instructing them in the areas of homeownership, business creation, accounting, English classes, among others.
CASA strives to protect the rights of immigrants and enhance their well-being and participation in the community. Our organization works to help victims of domestic violence access the means to escape abusive and dangerous situations and achieve self- sufficiency.
CASA’s Core Values
Service, compassion, dignity, responsibility, integrity, and leadership comprise our core values. These values are reflected in our work on behalf of clients and in our partnerships in the community.
