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.
