CASA, A Voice for Children

What We Do:

We make a difference in the lives of abused and/or neglected children in Napa by providing critical advocacy and support for children from newborn to twenty, supporting children throughout the entire time they’re in foster care. A long term, stable relationship, like those through CASA, is the single most important factor influencing positive outcomes for children in foster care.

All children in foster care need and deserve the opportunity for a better future — a future that includes being safe, being cared for, and the chance to succeed.

We provide support for foster children as they experience traumatic life transitions, including separation from parents and multiple foster care placements. What these children need more than anything is a responsible adult who’ll step forward and say to these children that someone cares about them, that they matter and that their life is important.

We train, supervise, and support the volunteers who meet with the children on a regular basis, assessing their living situation and providing support through a caring and stable relationship. This helps the children cope with the trauma they’ve experienced and develop resilience.


Other Ways to Help:

  • Become a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for a child in foster care.
  • Become a CASA board member.
  • Help with the annual CASA event “The Art of Helping Children”.
  • Invite CASA to speak to your business or community organization.
  • Hold an event for CASA and introduce us to your family and friends.

Testimonial:

My CASA volunteer, Sally, was the one person who was there just for me. Knowing Sally cared about me meant the world to me. I am living proof that CASA volunteers change kids' lives.
