Building A Better Baton Rouge One Abused/Neglected Child At A Time

For 16 years Ricketta Monroe-Cotton has been an advocate supervisor for Capital Area CASA Association, a non-profit that works to help the well-being of the city of Baton Rouge. Ricketta’s commitment to CASA is her commitment to Baton Rouge by doing what she can for the betterment of the city and its future generation. Her goal, as is the mission of CASA, is finding safe, stable, and permanent homes for every child in foster care in East Baton Rouge.
Why does she do this line of work? The Baton Rouge native says it has always been in her blood to help people, as she recites wise words from her grandmother, “If not you then who. If not now, then when.”
As Cotton celebrated 16 years of a fulfilling career she is passionate about; she shared with beBatonRouge her advice to young women and her love for the city of Baton Rouge.
CASA is a non-profit that recruits, trains, and supervises community volunteers to speak up and become voices for abused and neglected children in the foster care system. For more information on CASA or to volunteer, visit
