Your local CASA® program offers a volunteer opportunity like no other. CASA volunteers are empowered to make a lifelong difference in the lives of abused and neglected children. Our volunteers are an amazing force for good, but we need more of them. Our vision is that every child who needs a volunteer will have one. With your help, we can reach that goal. CASA® volunteers are always happy to share their stories – the work they do is inspiring, humbling, and deeply rewarding.

By the Numbers

In an overburdened social welfare system, abused and neglected children often slip through the cracks. On average, a foster kid will remain in the system for 3 years. According to the Pew Commission on Children in Foster Care:

  • 95% of kids with a CASA volunteer stay out of long-term foster care.
  • 90% of kids with a CASA volunteer do not re-enter the child welfare system. Kids with CASA volunteers are more likely to be adopted. U.S. Department of Justice
  • At any one time, more than 500,000 kids are in foster care because they cannot live safely with their families.
  • On average, a child is moved at least 3 times while in foster care--often more. National Children's Law Network
