About San Francisco CASA
San Francisco CASA transforms the lives of abused and neglected foster youth by providing one consistent, caring volunteer advocate, trained to address each child’s needs in the court and the community.
San Francisco CASA (“SFCASA”) is a community-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to training and supporting Court Appointed Special Advocates who serve San Francisco County’s foster children. Since our founding in 1991 with our first graduating class of 11 volunteers, we have trained over 2,700 CASAs and empowered everyday citizens in San Francisco to become officers of the court, serving as advocates for abused and neglected youth in foster care.
Our volunteers help foster children by advocating for safe and permanent homes, addressing urgent needs related to healthcare and education, and developing permanent connections within communities to ensure that support will continue even after a youth has left foster care. We are committed to providing one-on-one volunteer advocacy and mentorship for foster youth. Today, we have close to 300 volunteers who have provided services to over 300 court-dependent children and adolescents in the past year.
SFCASA seeks a passionate, strategic, and visionary leader to serve as its next Executive Director. The new Executive Director will steward SFCASA’s mission, create new and innovative strategies for growth, elevate the profile and presence of the organization in the community, promote active participation and growth of the volunteer and donor base, and ensure programmatic effectiveness.
