California law allows the Juvenile Court to designate one organization per county as its official CASA program. This designation gives CASA volunteers the legal authority to investigate the circumstances of a child who has been abused or neglected, spend time with the child, and make best interest recommendations to the Juvenile Court. A CASA learns about the child, observes their needs, and communicates with the other adults on the child’s case, including caregivers, social workers, and attorneys. In addition, they have the opportunity to write a report to provide information that the Court might not otherwise have. Voices for Children has served as the CASA program for Riverside County since 2015.
Voices for Children serves more than 400 children in Riverside County annually and has ambitious plans to continue to expand the program.
