WHAT IS CASA?
CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is an organization of neutral, court-appointed Advocates who are the voice for abused and neglected foster children in Fresno and Madera Counties.
WHY IS CASA NEEDED?
In Fresno and Madera counties, there are over 1,800 children in the foster care system, and studies show that children with a CASA volunteer are substantially less likely to spend time in long-term foster care.
When a child connects with a permanent family, their chances for a successful future and positive contributions to their community increase dramatically.
