Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) are community volunteers, just like you, who stand up and speak out to help children and youth in foster care.

Our CASA program belongs to a network of 951 independent community-based programs that recruit, train and support citizen-volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in courtrooms and communities.

CASA of Santa Cruz County currently serves over 270 children and youth annually - and the need doesn't go away.

News & Events

At CASA, we are always looking for ways to celebrate our amazing Advocates. In keeping with that intention, every month we will highlight the story and experience of one Advocate who is working with a child or youth. Every Advocate has a story, and we hope that by regularly featuring individual Advocates, we can honor the stories and experiences of all.

Eat at Chipotle in Capitola on Sunday, August 13th between 10:45am and 9:00pm, bring in this flyer, show it on your smartphone or tell the cashier you’re supporting CASA to make sure that 50% of the proceeds will be donated to CASA of Santa Cruz County.
