A child with a CASA/GAL volunteer is half as likely to re-enter the foster care system.
Court Appointed Special Advocates® (CASA) are community volunteers, just like you, who stand up and speak out to help abused and neglected children.
The mission of CASA of Carson City is to support and promote court-appointed volunteer advocacy so that every abused and neglected child can be safe, establish permanence, and have the opportunity to thrive.
"I was a licensed foster parent for four years in Carson City. But a life-altering diagnosis affected my ability to continue providing in-home care to children in crisis.
I sought to become a Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) because I still wanted to be part of the solution in my community, despite a disabling condition. I wanted to be someone a child in crisis could rely on, because I know how important that is to a child."
