for foster youth
At any given time, there are about 1,000 children in the Santa Clara County foster care system.
Every one of these children has experienced trauma in the form of abuse, neglect and/or abandonment.
Every one of these children deserves to have a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Volunteer.
You can have an impact
Studies show foster children with a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Volunteer receive more educational and health services; are more likely to find a safe, permanent home; perform better in school; and spend less time in foster care than children without one.
98% of our high school seniors completed high school compared to less than 60% of foster teens in California.
76% of our 3 to 5 year olds were enrolled in preschool compared to 23% of all preschool age foster children in Santa Clara County.
