The mission of the Washoe CASA Foundation isto support the Washoe County CASA Program through fundraising, advocacy, outreach, and community awareness.
What is CASA?
The Washoe County CASA Program consists of trained Court Appointed Special Advocates who work one-on-one with abused or neglected children. Without the support of a responsible and caring adult who acts as an advocate, children face a higher risk of returning to unsafe homes or remaining in long-term foster care.
Separate from the Washoe County CASA Program, the Washoe CASA Foundation provides funding for volunteer training and recruitment, fulfills the needs of children served by the Program, and engages in community outreach in order to increase public awareness of CASA.
