Mission Statement

There are approximately 2,500 foster children in the DC Family Court system. 1,500 new cases of abuse and neglect appear each year. CASA DC's goal is to recruit and train volunteers to serve every one of these children. CASA DC offers kinds of volunteer opportunities, both of which pair an adult (21+) with a young person (usually between 6 and 21) who has suffered from abuse or neglect.

Description

CASA- Court Appointed Special Advocates are trained to speak up for children in the DC Foster Care system. CASAs are appointed by a judge to represent the best interest of a foster care child or youth. CASAs gather information about each child’s situation, submit reports to the court, make recommendations in the best interest of the child and provide the court with valuable insight into the child’s life. CASAs dedicate a minimum of 10-15 hours per month to their case for at least a year.
