In an overburdened social welfare system, abused and neglected children need a stable adult in their lives. CASA is the only volunteer organization that empowers everyday citizens as court officers to be that reliable adult and advocate for an appointed foster child. CASA Volunteer Advocates typically handle one case at a time; they commit to advocate for the child until he/she is placed in a safe, permanent home. While others may come and go, the CASA Volunteer Advocate provides that one constant adult mentor that children need in order to thrive.
CASA needs more volunteers! Currently there are over 900 children in the Ventura County Dependency Court System who need, want, and are waiting for a CASA Volunteer Advocate. Please consider attending the next CASA Informational Session on Wednesday, June 21, to learn about this unique program, the training, and how you can make a difference in the life of a child in our community.
