“Being a CASA is the hardest but most rewarding work I have ever done. Getting a note from my youth saying
‘Thank you for all the love that I need in my life, and thanks for being there always!’ This pretty much says it all.”
– Shelley, CASA Volunteer

 
Become a CASA volunteer and give a foster child the attention they need and the advocacy they deserve.

There are 7,000 Bay Area children and teens in foster care, who have entered the system due to abuse, abandonment, or neglect. Foster youths’ lives are full of uncertainty. They can change homes and schools multiple times a year, falling behind academically.

However, outcomes for foster youth greatly improve when they have the caring advocacy of a CASA volunteer.

Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA volunteers, are often the only consistent, caring adult in a foster child’s life. These volunteers speak up for the child’s best interests. CASA programs train members of our community to become CASA volunteers, and support them during their volunteer service.

With just 10-20 hours per month, you can change a foster child’s life.

Take the first step. Choose the CASA program most convenient to your home or office and sign up to attend a volunteer information session.
