Our Mission

The mission of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Santa Barbara County is to assure a safe, permanent, nurturing home for all abused and/or neglected children by providing a highly trained volunteer to advocate for them in the court system.

Out of County

Nobody longs for a safe and loving family more than a child in foster care. As a court-appointed special advocate (CASA) volunteer, you are empowered by the courts to help make this dream a reality. You will not only bring positive change to the lives of these vulnerable children but also their children and generations to come. And in doing so, you will enrich your life as well.

Every gift to CASA of Santa Barbara County makes a difference in our ability to provide advocacy to victims of abuse and neglect.  Your tax-deductible gift makes a tremendous difference in our ability to match our county’s most at-risk children with volunteer advocates.
