San Francisco CASA Program
The SFCASA program reflects a community will to improve quality of life, expand opportunity, and prevent delinquency for abused and neglected children in foster care. Since 1991, SFCASA has been committed to providing one-on-one volunteer advocacy and mentorship to foster children and youth. SFCASA began operations with a class of 11 volunteers and has since trained over 2,672 CASA’s. Today SFCASA has more than 329 volunteers and in the last year has provided services to 321 court dependent children. SFCASA addresses a foster child’s most vital needs–housing, education and healthcare–by ensuring that appropriate, court-ordered services are being received.
