CASA-NYC advocates for children and youth in New York City foster care.
Our mission is to ensure that children in foster care have their needs met and rights protected; that they move out of foster care and into permanent, safe and loving homes as quickly as possible; and that young people aging out of foster care have the resources and support they need to live independently. Family Court Judges assign CASA to assist with the most complex cases. We work diligently to provide individualized attention to each child, ensuring their needs are addressed and helping them navigate the maze of the NYC foster care system. CASA-NYC is a volunteer-based, not-for-profit organization, and a member in good standing of the National CASA Association.
