About

The Mission of Child Advocates of Placer County is to be the bridge between the most vulnerable in our community and volunteers who make a difference. We do this through two volunteer-driven programs:

1) Placer CASA, which assigns Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) to children in foster care, and

2) Placer Mentors, which assigns volunteer Mentors to at-risk youth (ages 8 to 18) and former foster youth (ages 18 to 24) who are transitioning into adulthood without family support.

Board duties are fairly typical of other non-profits, and include organizational governance, financial oversight and fund raising. Board meetings occur every other month, with committees meeting in between. Meetings also include an annual board retreat in June to review and update our Strategic Plan, elect officers and form committees for the fiscal year.
