Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: CASA of Contra Costa County

CASA Logo

CASA Tutors provide high quality, consistent, and accessible educational support to children and youth in the foster care system. Tutors pick their child or youth up from their placement and meet with them in a community setting, such as a public library, once a week for a minimum of one hour.

Volunteer tutors are experienced educators (teachers, tutors, or paraeducators) who have received additional training from CASA of Contra Costa County. Tutors are matched with students based on the youth’s needs and the volunteer’s ability to support them through their skill set or knowledge base.

About CASA of Contra Costa County

Mission Statement

The Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program recruits, trains, and supports volunteer advocates as a powerful voice for the best interest of abused and neglected children during the court process, in order to help every child ultimately thrive in a stable and permanent home.

Description

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Contra Costa County is an independent, 501(c)(3) community-benefit organization, that operates under the authority of and according to guidelines established by the Judicial Council, as outlined in the California State Welfare and Institutions Code and in the California Rules of Court. We are a member of both the National and California CASA Associations.

Currently, we serve over 15% of the nearly 1,000 children from every city and region of our county, who come through the foster care system every year. These children are typically the neediest and have the most challenging circumstances.

Since 1981, through their service and commitment, volunteers trained by CASA of Contra Costa County have helped to restore hope in the lives of children and youth who have been abused and neglected and are under the court's care. Our volunteers demonstrate time and time again that one person can truly make a difference.
