Children and Youth

Make a difference in the life of a foster child, become a CASA

Court Appointed Special Advocates training starts soon

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is seeking adults (21 and older) community members to become advocates for foster children from our community. As an advocate, you will become the voice for the child, speaking up for them in the courtroom, classroom, and the community.

There is no special background required to become an advocate. We are looking for caring and reliable adults who have a few hours each month to spend with a foster child, advocating in their best interest, and ensuring their basic needs are met.

The next Advocate Training starts Oct. 18 and will be held two nights per week for five weeks. For more information and to start the process of becoming a court appointed child advocate, contact the CASA office at (831) 637-4992 or visit
