What We Do

California CASA was created to empower local programs.

Local CASA directors who ran county-wide programs, recognized the need for a state office that could grow and strengthen the CASA network. Together, they formed California CASA Association in 1987.

At our founding, only 17% of California Superior Courts had access to CASA volunteers. Through persistence, partnership, and passion for our mission, our grassroots network of CASA programs has grown to serve children and courts in 84% of California’s 58 counties, covering the region where 99% of foster youth live.

Today, CASA volunteers change lives, one foster child at a time.
