Alameda County Court Appointed Special Advocates Program, (CASA) promotes and supports quality volunteer advocates to speak for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the dependency court system.
Alameda County CASA serves abused, neglected, or abandoned children by recruiting, training, and supervising adult volunteers who are appointed by a juvenile court judge to speak for the best interests of the child. They also aid the judge in finding the child a safe, permanent home. The one-on-one relationship that forms between the CASA volunteer and the dependent child is often the only stable relationship the child has while in foster care.
