The California CASA Way

We connect all of California’s 44 local CASA programs through statewide meetings, training sessions, and online communication networks. We raise awareness of the need for Court Appointed Special Advocates across our state and provide support, advice, resources, and oversight to maintain high-quality programs that serve children’s best interests. We advocate for legislation that benefits children in foster care and the CASA volunteers who work on their behalf.
