Capital Area CASA

New office building for administrative operations and volunteer training facilities

This Baton Rouge non-profit association, trains and supervises community volunteers to advocate for the timely placement of abused children in safe, permanent homes. After concluding a two-year-long capital campaign, construction for the new facility began on neighboring donated land. The new office was designed to foster more productivity, enabling the organization to better serve abused children in East Baton Rouge Parish. Designed in context with the historic neighborhood of Beauregard Town, the new CASA houses all administrative operations and provides training facilities for volunteers in an open, team oriented environment and layout.

It is often described as stunning and perfectly meets the goals we set forth – a central location for program operations and a marriage of historic Beauregard Town and modern functionality. Our new facility is the perfect space for staff and volunteers to coordinate their advocacy for abused children.
