Volunteers needed!

As a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), you support a youth in the child welfare or juvenile justice system to ensure they have a consistent and caring adult who speaks on their behalf and helps them reach their full potential.

A CASA volunteer works with one child or youth, meeting weekly for the duration of their case. As a CASA, you are spending time getting to know them and building trust to find out what they need, ensuring their voice is heard in court, in school and in life.

CASA volunteers also work with attorneys and social workers. They review records, research information, and talk to anyone involved with the child, including parents, extended family members, doctors and teachers and gathering information from everyone involved in the child's case. From information gathered, a volunteer presents his or her best recommendations to the judge, speaking for the safety and welfare of his or her CASA child.

Advocates are fully supported by a CASA of San Mateo County staff and are part of a team that works in the best interest of the child. For many children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives.
