A Powerful Voice For Foster Children
Since 1986, Child Advocates has matched over 16,000 children with an advocate. Our success is clear:
- 76% of Child Advocates’ children ages 3 to 5 are enrolled in preschool, compared to only 23% of all 3-5-year-old children in the Santa Clara County dependency system
- 98% of Child Advocate youth completed their high school requirements compared with less than 50% of foster children nationwide.
- When a CASA is assigned to a foster child, more educational, therapeutic, medical services are ordered for children and families
- In four out of five cases, all or almost all volunteer CASA recommendations are accepted by the judge.
