of the Washoe CASA Foundation is to support the Washoe County CASA Program through fundraising, advocacy, outreach, and community awareness.


Why do we need CASA?

On an average day in Washoe County, more than 900 abused and neglected children live in foster care because they cannot live safely at home. These children need safe, permanent homes and the support of a responsible and caring adult. Without the voice of an advocate, children face a higher risk of returning to unsafe homes or remaining in long-term foster care. Trained CASA volunteers work one-on-one, getting to know each child’s story, hopes, and dreams.

Who is the CASA Foundation?

Separate from the Washoe County CASA Program, the Washoe CASA Foundation provides funding for volunteer training and recruitment and for fulfilling the needs of children served by the Program.  The Foundation engages in community outreach in order to increase public awareness of CASA.
