Did you know there are approximately 1,600 foster children in the Santa Clara County?

Child Advocates of Silicon Valley serves at-risk children in the foster care system by providing a trained, dedicated volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) to advocate in court for the child’s best interests.
By spending time with a child and getting to know him or her, you can become not only a role model and mentor, but also a trusted friend. CASAs attend dependency court hearings and provide reports and recommendations to the judge when life-changing decisions are being made.
The first step is to attend an orientation session which will include a thorough overview of the role and requirements of becoming a CASA to one of the nearly 200 children on our waiting list.
We are hosting an exciting orientation event happening on Wednesday, October 5th, 6:15 pm - 8:00 p.m.
The event will take place the Sobrato Center on 1400 Parkmoor Ave, San Jose 95126. Please RSVP with me at email@example.com if you would like to attend.
You can have a huge impact on the life of a foster child.
