Become a Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA)

Nearly 700,000 children experience abuse or neglect each year. Many foster youth are attending court hearings, adjusting to new foster homes and transitioning to new schools. That’s a heavy burden for a child to carry. With a court-appointed special advocate (CASA) or guardian ad litem (GAL) volunteer dedicated to their case, these young people have someone by their side, speaking up for their best interests.

Big Brothers Big Sisters

When children and teens have the influence of a caring adult, they are more likely to avoid risky behaviors and to focus on academics. Today's youth face a variety of challenges, and being matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister can help them navigate these challenges and reach their potential.
