What is a CASA Volunteer?

CASA volunteers are people like you.

They are community members who want to make certain that the voices of abused and neglected children are heard.

Impact of the CASA Program

Beyond just helping children, CASA volunteers are helping shape a brighter future by reducing the costs of child welfare. Children with a CASA volunteer are much less likely to languish in foster care. If the time children spend in foster is shortened by just one month, the overall cost of the child welfare system is reduced by nearly 9%. Only 9% of children with a volunteer re-enter the system, compared to 16% without a volunteer.
