What is a CASA Volunteer?

A CASA volunteer is also known as a Court Appointed Special Advocate or CASA. They are volunteers that are trained by our organization to advocate for the best interests of foster children.

It is the only program of its kind with volunteers empowered directly by the courts to provide children with one-on-one advocacy.

 

The Solution

    • CASA volunteers are screened and completed 30 hours of training supported by CASA staff
    • Judges depend on CASA volunteers to make informed decisions about children in care
    • Spend an average of 5 to 10 hours a month to work on case

The Problem

    • Over 2,000 New Mexico children in foster care
    • New Mexico foster care children spend an average of more than one year in care

Make an Impact

Court-appointed special advocate (CASA) volunteers make a life-changing difference for children who have experienced abuse or neglect. Each volunteer is appointed by a judge to advocate for a child’s best interest in court. Our volunteers help judges develop a fuller picture of each child’s life. Their advocacy enables judges to make the most well-informed decision for each child.
