WHAT WE DO

CASA for Children of DC is a leading voice in advocacy for court-involved youth in the District of Columbia. CASA DC connects specially-trained volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates to support vulnerable and at-risk youth in foster care and the juvenile justice system. CASA volunteers develop a mentor-like relationship with their youth and advocate for their youth’s best interests in Court, promoting greater outcomes and the opportunity to thrive.

 

Our Goal is To Ensure That Every Foster Youth in D.C. Has a CASA.

THEY ARE MORE LIKELY TO SUCCEED IN SCHOOL

THEY ARE LESS LIKELY TO RE-ENTER THE FOSTER CARE SYSTEM
