Mission Statement

CASA provides a powerful voice for youth in the child welfare system through a unique one-on-one relationship with trained and supervised court appointed volunteer advocates. We work to ensure that these youth are safe, have a permanent home and an opportunity to thrive.

Description

On any given day in Orange County, there are nearly 3,000 children who have been removed from their parents' care and placed in out-of-home care due to abuse or neglect. CASA is a nonprofit organization that matches caring volunteers with these children. Through mentorship and advocacy, volunteers are role models who provide consistency and give the children a voice in court. The unique one-on-one relationship that forms between the volunteer and dependent child is often the only stable, positive relationship the child has. In a sea of social workers, attorneys, therapists and caregivers, it's the court appointed volunteer who is a consistent and caring friend and advocate for the child. Our volunteers and staff are every day heroes who have the passion and commitment to positively influence the lives of these very special kids - one child at a time. CASA is currently listed as the Best Place to Volunteer in Orange County.

Incredible organization. As a business professional, it's also easy to see that they are very well run and organized. The service they administer to foster and group-home kids is priceless and the support they provide to their volunteer mentor-advocates is unparalleled.

The organization is very well run with passionate, caring, compassionate staff. They make it so easy for the volunteer to work with foster care children. They provide all the tools you need to help them and it is so rewarding. This has been one of the greatest experiences I have ever had... and CASA makes it happen.

It is a great organization to volunteer with, although volunteers are required to pay fingerprint and background check around $70-100.
