Are you interested in supporting and making a difference for the nearly 1700 foster children and youth in care in St. Louis? Join CASA of St. Louis!
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) have the opportunity to be an advocate for a foster child’s best interest and provide them an independent voice for the duration of the time they are in care. CASA volunteers spend time with the child(ren) and gather information from others involved in their lives (teachers, foster parents, doctors, etc) in order to make recommendations to the judge and other team members as to what best serves the child. Children who are served by a CASA are more likely to have a plan for permanency, perform better in school, will have more services ordered, and spend less time in foster care than children not supported by a CASA. You could be that stepping stone in changing the outcome!
As a CASA volunteer you will receive pre-service and continuing education training and will be supported by a professional supervisor skilled in child welfare to guide you. CASA volunteers come from all walks of life and no special education or experience is required. You have the opportunity to be part of a dedicated volunteer corps that serve as sworn officers of the court!

About CASA of St. Louis
105 S. Central Ave., St. Louis, MO 63105, US
CASA of St. Louis engages highly trained volunteers to provide best-interest court and community-based advocacy for children in the foster care system due to abuse and neglect.
On any given day there are nearly 1,700 St. Louis children in foster care. These children desperately need a voice in the critical decisions that affect them today and long into the future. These are children who need advocates to speak up for them - to help break the cycle of abuse and set a course for nurturing healthy families for generations. There are many ways you can help give hope and a voice to a child.
Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers are paired with our staff of child advocacy professionals to create a powerful advocacy team for each child. CASA advocates are sworn officers of the court who get to know each child as an individual and, working with a child advocacy professional, advocate for the child’s best interests in court and in the community where decisions about the child’s life are made.
CASA of St. Louis is a member of the Missouri and National CASA Associations, and the United Way.
