When you become a CASA volunteer, you have the unique role of advocating for a child who has experienced abuse or neglect.
You have the opportunity to make a difference in a child's life and help them find their way to a safe, permanent home.
It only takes 10-12 hours a month, and all training is provided. Attend an upcoming info session or set up a time to meet and chat about CASA at our office or over coffee, we're happy to answer any questions.

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.
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.
