What a Court Appointed Special Advocate, (CASA), does for youth in Marin County

About the Marin CASA Program

Our goal is to see every child thrive in a safe, permanent and supportive home.

As sworn officers of the court, our volunteer advocates are responsible for making recommendations for the safety, permanence and well-being of every Marin CASA child. By building a consistent and supportive relationship with each child, Marin CASA makes a difference one child at a time.

When a child has an advocate, s/he is more likely to get needed services — and a permanent, stable home.
