CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate and our volunteers work tirelessly to advocate for children in Lancaster County’s foster care system.

CASA of Lancaster began in 2009, and since then we have advocated for over 900 children.

Our volunteers are trained to advocate for the best interests of the child. They meet with the child and communicate with caseworkers, foster parents, therapists, teachers and doctors. They write reports for the court and attend hearings.

CASA volunteers are often the consistent adult presence in a child’s life. While placements and caseworkers may change, a CASA remains on the case until the child has a safe and permanent home.

We rely on grants, donations and fundraisers to sustain our program. We need your support so we can provide a CASA volunteer to every child who needs one.
