About CASA

Imagine you are four years old. You've suddenly been removed from your home because it's no longer safe. You are placed in foster care, with strangers, in a strange place, for reasons you don't understand. Your heart fills with fear, sadness and uncertainty. Fortunately, you are paired with a CASA Volunteer.

A CASA volunteer is a stable and reassuring presence in the life of a child in foster care, maintaining a strong connection until permanency is established. CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate, someone trained and assigned to a child by the sitting judge of the dependency court. These volunteer advocates get to know their foster youth, check in with their parents, are present at court hearings, and communicate with social workers and counselors. They are the eyes and ears for the judge, gathering information, reviewing records and making recommendations that keep the foster youth's best interests at the forefront.

Currently, there are 1,700 youth in San Joaquin County foster care, 80 of them waiting to be paired with a CASA Volunteer.
