Did you know?
Last year in Utah, there were over 14,000 court cases dealing with child abuse and neglect. It must be terrifying for an at risk child to wake up one morning and find themselves in the court system, in foster care. An amazing group of volunteers play a major role in affecting the lives of abused and neglected children. A CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) becomes a strong voice for at risk children that find themselves in the “system” because of parental abuse or neglect. More importantly, a CASA is a friendly face to a scared child when they need it most. Help us, help kids!
Utah’s Friends of CASA is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization that invests in the Utah CASA program by providing essential resources, training, and funding. We are a group of interested and concerned community members who support the vision and mission of the Utah CASA Program.
Utah’s Friends of CASA envisions every child having a permanent home. We do this by providing funding for the program and volunteers in these key areas:
- Volunteer Recruitment

- Statewide Program Advertising
- Annual Fundraising Events
- All Volunteer Retention Efforts
Utah’s Friends of CASA is led by an all volunteer Board of Directors and is funded through private donations. To learn more about how you can help, contact us or donate here:
