In the United States over one half million children are in foster care because they cannot safely live with their families. Nearly 70,000 National CASA volunteers serve approximately 280,000 of those abused or neglected children every year. CASA volunteers are the only volunteers that are appointed by a judge and empowered to stand up for an abused or neglected child in court.
