About Special Advocate for Children

2ab1a528bba2a54fd2cc96f76d57641a81ed8647

CASA volunteers are everyday people – teachers, business people, retirees, stay-at-home moms, and grandparents – who are committed to making a difference for children who might otherwise slip through the cracks of an overburdened foster care system. CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to help ensure that every child in foster care is moved to a safe, permanent home as quickly as possible. CASA volunteers research case records and interview each person involved in a child’s life, including family members, teachers, doctors, lawyers, and social workers. They monitor the progress of the child and family and advocate for the child’s current and future needs in court, in school, and in agency meetings. CASA’s independent evaluations allow the court to make better informed decisions.
Because CASA volunteers serve on one case at a time, they truly get to know an individual child or sibling group. They provide sustained, personal attention to every child – just as every child deserves.
We invite you to join our family of volunteers and make a difference in a child’s life – and your own.
