Mission Statement

In Fresno and Madera counties, more than 2,500 children wait in foster care for a lasting home. For these young survivors of chaos, the foster care system alone just isn’t enough. They need more personalized attention than county agencies can provide. CASA helps fill that need

Description

CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates-neutral volunteers who speak for children in foster care. To displaced children, CASA stands for hope in a time of turmoil. Foster children have been removed from unsafe, abusive or neglectful homes. Their journey is far from over as they enter a world of lawyers, therapists, social workers, new schools, and temporary homes. CASA volunteers are trained to be a consistent, watchful presence in foster children’s changing lives. They work with the system and help judges make informed decisions in children’s best interests. CASA’s goal is to help each child transition from foster care to a healthy, successful future, whether in a permanent, adoptive home or as an independent adult. CASA of Fresno and Madera Counties is one of nearly 1,000 community-based CASA programs nationwide. We are a non-profit agency and we rely on donations.
