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.
WHAT WE DO
EVERY CHILD DESERVES THE OPPORTUNITY TO THRIVE.
CASA Volunteers SHOW UP, STAND UP, & SPEAK UP.
Once appointed to a child’s case, CASA Volunteers are trained and supported to:
Build a trusting relationship with the child and consistently SHOW UP by planning weekly in-person visits and activities.
STAND UP for the child within the courtroom, classroom, and community to ensure they receive the services and resources they need to thrive.
Gather information, SPEAK UP, and submit written reports directly to the court to assist in making decisions in the best interest of the child.
