Give a Child a CASA
Currently, the cost to Give a Child a CASA is $1,500 for one year. The highly trained and supervised Advocate will advocate independently, and speak up in the courtroom for their best interests. The dollars we raise stay here in our community and help us train and supervise this fabulous corps of dedicated CASAs. We typically have 60-80 children on the wait list at any given time and each child on that list has a need for a caring CASA Advocate.
One child for a year $1,500
Two children for a year $3,000
Three children for a year $4,500
