Help us provide 20 foster children with a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA).

For an abused or neglected foster child, a Court Appointed Special Advocate – CASA volunteer, is someone who listens, observes, and reports. Someone who speaks up for the child by reaching out to the professionals involved. A CASA is someone whose sole mission is to clear a path for the child as they travel through the complexities of an overburdened child welfare system.

 

Support CASA of Sonoma County

Help us reach every foster child in need of a voice!

For 20 years, CASA of Sonoma County has recruited, trained, and supervised CASAs who have advocated for the rights and well-being of Sonoma County’s foster children in the courtroom, in school, and in the community. CASA is a non-profit organization committed to serving abuse, neglected and abandoned children who come before the Juvenile Court for protection. CASA is a unique, one of a kind program in Sonoma County. We are a citizen-driven organization which is legally recognized by the Sonoma County Juvenile Court.

As we celebrate our 20th year anniversary, our #GivingTuesday goal this year is to raise $20,000 in 24 hrs! A $20,000 investment in CASA of Sonoma County’s mission will provide 20 foster children with a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA).

It costs approximately $1,000 to recruit, train and match a volunteer with a child in the system. All funds received by CASA are put to immediate use with only 18% used for administrative costs.

As you consider investing in your community on the biggest philanthropic day of the year, keep our Sonoma County foster children at heart.
