San Francisco CASA Program

I am for the child...
Mission:

The San Francisco CASA Program volunteer advocates are the only individuals who provide one-on-one advocacy and mentoring on behalf of abused and neglected children who are under the jurisdiction of San Francisco’s juvenile dependency court.

Who We Serve:

For children who have suffered abuse and neglect, the SFCASA volunteer may be the most consistent, interested presence in their lives.

SFCASA volunteers meet the child’s caregivers, teachers, parents, doctors, social worker, lawyer—everyone in the child’s life. They come to understand the child’s hopes and dreams and they strive to determine what will be in the child’s best interests. This comprehensive knowledge enables SFCASA volunteers to speak with authority for children in the courtroom.
