Because every child
deserves a home.


The Associate Board is a passionate group of young professionals dedicated to volunteering their time, talents, and energy to raise crucial funds for CASA programs.

Ranging in age from 21-40, these members help promote our mission of providing one-on-one advocacy to help New York City’s foster care children and youth grow up in safe, permanent and loving homes where they can thrive.

The committee hosts an annual fall fundraiser, and various networking and issue awareness opportunities throughout the year.
