Too many children in foster care in Lompoc do not have the support of a CASA volunteer, but YOU can change that!

CASA volunteers are trained to advocate for children in foster care. CASA for Children matches volunteers one-on-one with a child and supports volunteers every step of the way. Volunteers speak up for the child in court, at school, and in their community. Volunteers make sure children are safe and have what they need to thrive.

Make a resolution to make a difference in a child's life, become a CASA volunteer in 2019.

About CASA of Santa Barbara County

Location:

2125 S Broadway, Suite 106, Santa Maria, CA 93454, US

Mission Statement

The mission of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Santa Barbara County is to assure a safe, permanent, nurturing home for every abused and/or neglected child by providing a highly trained volunteer to advocate for them in the court system.

Description

Every day in this country, 1,900 children become victims of abuse or neglect, and four of them will die. Every day. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children is a network of 949 community-based programs that recruit, train and support citizen-volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in courtrooms and communities. Volunteer advocates--empowered directly by the courts--offer judges the critical information they need to ensure that each child’s rights and needs are being attended to while in foster care.

Volunteers stay with children until they are placed in loving permanent homes. For many abused children, a CASA volunteer is the only constant adult presence in their lives.
