Every 45 seconds a child enters foster care. We know that most children in foster care will have multiple foster parents, schools, social workers and teachers in their lives while in care, all while dealing with the trauma of abuse or neglect and separation from their family of origin. 

CASA El Dorado serves and supports the young victims of child abuse and neglect in our community and addresses the root causes of this abuse. We recruit, train, and supervise volunteer Advocates from our community, who give us the flexibility to serve children and families in-need of support through three complimentary programs; Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program, Family Coaching and Family Law. 

Since 1992, CASA El Dorado has served over 3,500 children in foster care. Our volunteer advocates spend an average of 6,000 hours per year serving our youth. Currently we have 84 advocates who serve 128 children, with 17 children waiting for an advocate of their own. 

Our Vision

A world where every child who has experienced abuse or neglect is given the opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving home.

Giving Activity

Volunteers (age 21+): We need individuals to become CASA volunteers to help support; foster youth who have been abused or neglected, at-risk youth that find themselves in juvenile court, and family law advocating for the youth whose families are going through difficult times. We currently have 19 children waiting for a Court Appointed Special Advocate of their own.
