Foster children can spend years moving from one foster home to another. They’re more likely than other children to face lasting trauma, homelessness, unemployment and even prison as adults. This tragedy takes a tremendous toll on our communities. But you can create a positive change by becoming a CASA volunteer.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) volunteers work one-on-one with a foster child to ensure that foster children and youth receive needed health, education and therapeutic services, positive social and recreational opportunities, and consistent support.

Attending a Volunteer Information Session is the first step to becoming a CASA volunteer. It will help you understand what it means to be a CASA volunteer and how can you speak on behalf of an abused or neglected foster child or youth.
