Be the Voice, Be the Difference, BE A CASA.

Child Advocates of El Dorado County has been a registered 501c3 in El Dorado County since 1992, to provide an additional voice for abused children that have been removed from their home. We do this by recruiting, training, and supervising volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates who represent that children’s best interest and "act as the eyes and ears of the judge and the voice of the child".

Court Appointed Special Advocates, CASA, volunteers make a life-changing difference for children who have experienced abuse or neglect. Become a CASA volunteer!

We also need volunteers for our annual box lunch and CASA Gala fundraiser events. These people help make and deliver 3500 lunches in April and help with the October event.

About CASA El Dorado

Location:

347 MAIN ST, PLACERVILLE, CA 95667, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to recruit, train and support caring volunteer advocates for abused, neglected and at-risk children throughout El Dorado County.

Description

When children are abused or severely neglected, they must rely on adults to help them obtain justice and services. Who deserves an advocate more than an abused or neglected child?

The heart of our program is the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), a specially trained and supervised community volunteer, appointed by a Juvenile Court judge. CASA advocates make a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children by researching and monitoring cases involving children in foster care.

CASA’s typically take only one case at a time, allowing ample time to gather thorough information. They build relationships with their "CASA kids" by spending time with them, gathering facts about their life so they can report back to the judge; who can then make a more-informed decision as to what services and support are in the best interest the child. These decisions can have life-altering ramifications.
