About

Voices for Children recruits, trains, and supports volunteers to act as Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASAs, for children in foster care. CASAs can change the trajectory of a foster child’s life. They focus on an individual child’s needs, working one-on-one with a child or set of siblings. They use information they gather from various individuals on the child’s case and firsthand observations to advocate for the children’s best interests in Court, as well as in other aspects of their lives, such as education, health, and living arrangements.

No experience is necessary! We provide all the training you’ll need, as well as a dedicated staff supervisor to partner with you on the case. With just 10-15 hours a month, you can make a difference in the life of a foster child!

We're currently in need of fluent Spanish speakers to advocate for San Diego Latino foster youth! Our mission is to find a CASA for every child in the foster system that requires an advocate. We don't want to let language barriers keep children from an equal opportunity in receiving a CASA. If you're a bilingual, passionate, and dedicated individual looking to make an impact in your community, Voice for Children needs you!

You can attend an upcoming volunteer Information Session to learn more:

Saturday, May 5 th from 10:00-11:30am

Friday, May 18 th from 12:00-1:30pm

Wednesday, May 23 rd from 6:00-7:30pm
