Representation matters. That’s why it’s so important for boys in the foster care system to have male role models and mentors as they grow into young men. A CASA volunteer, or Court Appointed Special Advocate, makes sure a child who has experienced abuse or neglect can get the services and support they need and deserve. More than that, they stand by their side as a stable adult, a friend, and someone to show them howto build a future that’s brighter than their past. #malevolunteers #alamedacountycasa #volunteer #bayarea #oakland #california

Giving Foster Youth a Voice

We train and support over 300 volunteers a year, who are matched with youth in the foster care system in Alameda County and act as mentors, advocates and support systems for youth. Foster youth have so much potential, and are often moved around too often to create meaningful connections and feel seen.

CASA Volunteers are often the only unpaid people in their lives, and are able to see them beyond their paper file and help them feel self-worth and achieve their goals. They attend and help youth navigate their bi-annual court date, check in on educational and employment goals, make sure their housing is safe, help youth connect to community resources, and listen their dreams, among many other things. Our volunteers go above and beyond to help their assigned youth feel heard, empowered and supported!

We need help now. My nephew's dads girlfriend terrorizes him. Tonight at drop off I was so surprised to see his girlfriend there, and dad was nowhere in the car. Right away, she wanted to fistfight my niece as she was walking to the car to greet her son as she does all the time at pick up. She told me if I came any closer, she would fist fight me. In front of my good friend who was with me and in front of my son and her son who was in her car. my son went to get out of the vehicle he is 8 years old she slammed the car door on him when he was halfway out of the car. He is hurt the door slammed on his foot and on his right side I'm taking him to the hospital and calling the police. He is still crying how he does not want to go back. what can I do? so he is safe from this woman who also had been kicked off school grounds because of her behavior.
