CASA of Contra Costa County


Hope Begins with a CASA Volunteer

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) volunteers are ordinary people doing extraordinary work for abused, neglected and abandoned children and youth in foster care in our community.

As sworn officers of the court, CASA volunteers are appointed by a juvenile court judge to advocate one-on-one for children and youth in foster care. As an advocate you will be more than just a mentor – you will be a powerful voice for a child or youth during their uncertain journey in the foster care system.

You don’t have to be a lawyer or social worker. CASA of Contra Costa County will provide you with the training you need to succeed.

CASA volunteers come from various walks of life. They share the willingness and ability to commit two years, and 15-20 hours a month, to a child or youth to make a difference.
