Court Appointed Special Advocates of Sonoma County

The Sonoma CASA Program is committed to serving the abused and neglected children in Sonoma County who come before the Juvenile Court for protection. The purpose of CASA is to humanize the complicated, unfamiliar, and frightening legal and child welfare systems for the child victim by providing a trained volunteer who will act as a consistent mentor, role model, support person, and advocate.

Program Goal:
To reduce the trauma of children in the Juvenile Court dependency system by matching a child with a trained CASA volunteer who will offer support through a long-term consistent relationship. The volunteer will explore and recommend resources and options available for the child and will offer the child guidance and information in understanding and dealing with the complex, unfamiliar court and child welfare systems.

  • To advocate vigorously for the rights of abused and neglected children in Sonoma County ensuring that all "reasonable efforts" have been made for a child at every stage of the court dependency process.
  • To improve the quality of information presented to the Juvenile Court on behalf of the child by informing the court of the child's adjustment and state of mind. This is done by gathering relevant information and making appropriate case recommendations in a written case report.
  • To develop and implement a sound program management plan which includes recruitment, retention, supervision, and training of a competent volunteer corps which is ethnically, racially, and linguistically representative of the population to be served.
