OUR MISSION San Francisco CASA transforms the lives of abused and neglected foster youth by providing one consistent, caring volunteer advocate, trained to address each child’s needs in the court and the community. OUR VISION That every child has a safe and loving home and is given the opportunity to thrive.
In San Francisco alone, there are over 1,000 abused and neglected foster youth removed from their families in need of strong positive role models to nurture their development and advocate for their best interest.
Through advocacy and mentorship, the San Francisco Court Appointed Special Advocate Program empowers community members to stand up for a foster child and champion their rights in court.
As a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), you will be empowered by the foster care system to investigate, facilitate, advocate, and monitor the needs of foster children in order to represent their best interests. You will work one-on-one with a youth, getting to know them so you may advocate for their needs such as housing, education, permanent relationships, and extracurricular activities. At the end of the day, it is the goal of a CASA to help ensure these children don't struggle alone and are given a safe place to live.
SFCASA is in critical need of male volunteers to mentor boys and teens!
