Becoming an Advocate

A Child is waiting for you

Every day, abused and neglected children in Orange County are taken from their homes and placed into foster care because their parents cannot provide a safe home. Today, more than 120 children are on CASA’s wait list, referred by a judge and in need of a mentor-advocate of their own. CASA needs your help to ensure we help each child in need.

What it Takes

CASA volunteers are ordinary people – men and women, students and executives, retirees and busy professionals. What makes them special is they each give their time and hearts to make an extraordinary difference in the lives of Orange County’s most vulnerable children.

CASA will provide all of the training you need to be a powerful voice for a child’s best interest. A CASA volunteer visits with a child on a regular basis, interacts with all professionals involved in the child’s case and makes recommendations directly to the court, ensuring the child’s best interests are heard. A CASA volunteer will address a child’s educational needs, help find a permanent home and provide the guidance and resources necessary for an independent future.

With a CASA volunteer, a child’s future is brightened.
