About

Be a voice for children in the foster care system.
Every year more than half a million abused and neglected children are in need of safe, permanent, nurturing homes. They are more likely than other children to face homelessness, unemployment, even prison as adults. That's where CASA steps in. As trained advocates, CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to be a voice for these children in court. The ideal result is that a child is safely reunified with their parent who has shown they can now meet the child's needs. When that cannot happen, the CASA advocates for a safe, stable, permanent alternative. The Snohomish County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program is a Superior Court volunteer organization that empowers everyday citizens as appointed representatives of the court to make a lifelong difference in the lives of abused and neglected children of Snohomish County. In a well meaning but overburdened social welfare system, children's basic rights, needs, and best interest often get overlooked. CASA's can change that. Appointed by judges, CASA's typically commit to staying on a case until the child's case is dismissed. While others may come and go, the CASA often provides a consistent voice in the life of a child's case.
Lift up a child's voice. A child's life.
