San Antonio Community Resource Directory

The mission of Child Advocates San Antonio (CASA) is to recruit, train, and supervise court-appointed volunteer Advocates who provide constancy for abused and neglected children and youth while advocating for services and placement in safe and permanent homes.

CASA Advocates serve as an emotional support and a familiar face to children who face many traumatic changes in their life. By visiting the children monthly and gathering information from all the people involved in the case, CASA Advocates act as a fact-finder and report to the judge about the needs of the child during the life of the case.

Monday: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Tuesday: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Wednesday: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Thursday: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Friday: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Saturday: CLOSED Sunday: CLOSED

A Different Type of Donation

In kind donations are gifts given from a business or individual in the form of a product instead of direct funds. This could be a donation of food, toys, tech supplies, or any other physical donation made to CASA. We also hold a few annual drives such as Easter Basket Donations, School Supplies, or Seasonal Toy Drive.
