San Francisco CASA #GivingTuesday Challenge
Celebrating more than 25 years of helping San Francisco's foster youth, SFCASA (San Francisco Court Appointed Special Advocate Program) is a community-based, 501(c)3 organization. One of more than 900 independent members of the National CASA Association, SFCASA is the only volunteer program in San Francisco that empowers everyday citizens to become officers of the court to serve as advocates and mentors to abused and neglected children in foster care. Our vision is that every child has a safe, loving home and is given the opportunity to thrive.

All volunteers are screened, trained, and supervised by professional SFCASA staff.
