Advocate for a Youth in Foster Care!

ORGANIZATION: Voices for Children


Right now, more than 100 foster youth are waiting for your help.

Youth in foster care have experienced abuse or neglect and now they need an advocate that can help them get the supports they need to thrive.

We can't change what's already happened, but we can do something now. Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA volunteers, step up in a critical time to ensure these youths' needs are met.
You can make a direct impact by becoming a CASA volunteer. Click here to get started:

About Voices for Children


2851 Meadow Lark Drive, San Diego, CA 92123, US

Mission Statement

Voices for Children transforms the lives of abused children in San Diego County by providing them with volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs). We believe that every child deserves a safe and permanent home, and to that end, will review and monitor every court file in the system, provide a CASA to every child in the foster care system who needs one, and advocate to improve the lives of San Diego County’s foster children.


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 provide a source of consistency and stability, visiting with their case children at least once a month. CASAs gather information from files and reports and communicate with social workers, family members, school officials, and other professionals in the children’s lives. They use this information 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!
