About

CASAs, Court Appointed Special Advocates, are the voice for children in the foster care system. As a CASA you will make reqular visits with the child(ren) to whom you've been assigned and developing an on-going relationship. The CASA Advocate is the "voice" of the child(ren) representing their best interests in all case related matters, including court hearings.

CASA Advocates receive 40 hours of pre-service training covering a wide range of topics, including writing court documents. Upon completion of the pre-service training, the CASA Advocate is assigned to a CASA staff member who will serve as their supervisor providing on-going training, support and guidance.

CASA of Monterey County has provided advocates to hundreds of children over the years. Currently, as of 11/1/16, there are over 100 children on the waiting list for a CASA Advocate. Please contact us today for more information and dates of the next pre-service training.
