Court Appointed Special Advocates® (CASA) are community volunteers, just like you, who stand up and speak out to help abused and neglected children.

Our CASA program belongs to a network of 951 community-based programs that recruit, train and support citizen-volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in courtrooms and communities.

News & Events

Advocate Susan has been a co-CASA with her husband over the last two years. We asked her what she believes to be the most positive impact she has had on a child.

Ashley tells us about one difficulty in her last case & how she feels about the CASA program in Kern County.

Congratulations to our newest CASA Family Connections Advocates! Thank you for going through six additional hours of training in order to help connect foster children with as many appropriate family members as possible.
