Join our CASA First community
and be a caring adult for a child in foster care.
You can make a difference in the life of a child or youth in foster care. Our CASA First Volunteer Advocates are community volunteers who stand up and speak out to help abused and neglected children.
Formed in 1977, CASA was created out of a concern for decisions made about abused and neglected children without sufficient information.
CASA First has advocated for thousands of foster children in three northern New Mexico counties since 1995; Santa Fe, Rio Arriba, and Los Alamos. We are active members of the National CASA Association and the New Mexico CASA Network.
We support 60 CASA volunteers who advocate for over 170 abused and neglected children every year to help them reach safe and permanent homes.
Will you help?
Your gift can help make a lifelong difference for children who are in foster care. Help us make sure every foster child can have a CASA advocate to stand up for them in court.
