Imagine showing up to court and not knowing a soul. Worse yet, imagine being too young to speak for yourself in court and having complete strangers decide your future.
Now imagine having someone by your side who knows you and your story very well, who cares about you and has the strength to speak out and fight on your behalf. Imagine how empowering it is to have an advocate, who’s not even getting paid, but there only to help you succeed. Having a CASA advocate by your side can make the difference between despair and hope.

Studies show that CASA advocacy creates stability in a child’s life. Children who have a CASA are more likely to receive needed services, have fewer placement changes, spend less time in foster care, and are half as likely to return to the foster care system.
