I am for the child

Abused and neglected children need more help than the foster care system can provide. A Seattle judge created the first CASA program in 1977 so that children’s voices and needs would be represented in his courtroom. Today, the CASA movement is 76,000 volunteers strong. Yet 400,000 children still don’t have the hope that a CASA volunteer can offer. Help us change that—join the CASA movement today.

As a CASA volunteer, you are empowered by the courts to help make a child’s dream of a forever home a reality. You will be the one consistent adult in these children’s lives, fighting for and protecting their right to be treated with the dignity and respect that every child deserves. You will not only bring positive change to the lives of these vulnerable children, but also their children and generations to come. And in doing so, you will enrich your life as well.
