and be a caring adult for a child or youth.

Get Involved

Compassionate and broad advocacy for infants, children and youth who have been trauma-impacted. Our CASA First Advocates are caring, community volunteers who connect with, stand up for, and support children and youth who have experienced maltreatment, are system-involved, or at risk. 

Our History

CASA First was formed in 1977 out of a concern for decisions made about abused and neglected children without sufficient information.

CASA First has advocated for thousands of foster children from Santa Fe, Rio Arriba, and Los Alamos since 1995. We are active members of the National CASA Association and the New Mexico CASA Network.

The mission of CASA, First Judicial District is to support and promote volunteer advocacy so that children and youth from Santa Fe, Rio Arriba, and Los Alamos Counties who are trauma-impacted or system-involved can be safe, have permanent connections, and the opportunity to thrive.

Will you help?

Your gift can help make a lifelong difference for children who are or have been in foster care, or have experienced trauma. Help us make sure each of these children has a CASA First advocate to protect them.
