Are you good at standing up for others? Help a foster kid change their story!

We can’t change a foster kid’s past but we can help them to change their story! Become a Court Appointed Special Advocate and you help a foster kid to navigate the foster care system.

The average foster kid changes home and school 7 times during their time as a foster kid. As a CASA, you are the one consistent adult in their lives and with one focus: the best interests of that kid.

We provide:
