Be the Difference for a Child in Foster Care (CASA)
New Mexico Kids Matter Inc.
Become a CASA volunteer if you are ready to make a difference in a child's life.
A CASA volunteer is a court appointed, trained and committed adult who ensures that each child’s individual needs remain a priority in an over-burdened child welfare system. They get to know the child while also gathering information from the child’s family, teachers, doctors, caregivers and anyone else involved in the child’s life in order to make independent and informed recommendations to help the judge decide what’s best for the child.
If you are looking for a meaningful and enriching volunteer opportunity in Bernalillo county and want to do something about child abuse, CASA is right for you. There are over 900 children in our county that still need a CASA.
Call our office at 505-903-0305 for more information, or visit us at nmkidsmatter.org

New Mexico Kids Matter Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) speaks up for children who’ve been abused or neglected by empowering our community to volunteer as advocates for them in the court system. We believe every child who’s in foster care deserves to have a dedicated advocate speaking up for their best interest in court, at school and in our community.
To accomplish our mission New Mexico Kids Matter educates and empowers diverse community volunteers who ensure each child's needs remain a priority in an overburdened child welfare system. When the state steps in to protect a child's safety because the people responsible for protecting them have not, a judge appoints a trained CASA volunteer to make independent and informed recommendations and help the judge decide what's best for the child.
