casa_v_redblue_R_alt_rgb_normal  Learn about CASA Minnesota here   Support CASA in your state (below)Abused and neglected children need more help than the foster care system can provide.  

A Seattle judge created the first CASA program 36 years ago so that children’s voices and needs would be represented in his courtroom. Today, the CASA movement is 75,000 volunteers strong. Yet 400,000 children still don’t have the hope that a CASA volunteer can offer. Help us change that—join the CASA movement today.


Your gift to National CASA for Children will help us reach every child in need. National CASA provides comprehensive training for volunteers as well as in-depth assistance and support for the local CASA programs that serve your community. We need your help to ensure that every child has a champion, a protector, a CASA volunteer.

Donate Today



As a CASA volunteer, you are empowered by the courts to help make a child’s dream of a forever home a reality. You will be the one consistent adult in these children’s lives, fighting for and protecting their right to be treated with the dignity and respect that every child deserves. 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.
