CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) for Children of DC

Volunteers become mentors and advocates for neglected and abused foster care children and youth in the District of Columbia. Thirty hours of training are required, followed by the shadowing of other CASA managers in the Family Court and the assignment of a case to each volunteer. Volunteers help foster children and youth navigate the welfare system and advocate for them in court. Please join us in restoring hope to the children of DC!
