Child Advocates of Silicon Valley (http://www.BeMyAdvocate.org) seeks committed community volunteers who want to make a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children. Our volunteers work one-on-one with children in the foster care system, helping them thrive and find safe, permanent homes. Each of the agency's highly-trained volunteers is appointed by the court to work with an abused or neglected child, acting as a mentor and advocate for the child's best interests.

Child Advocates is the only nonprofit organization appointed by the Santa Clara County dependency court to represent the needs of abused and neglected children. We are one of the largest affiliates of the National Court Appointed Special Advocates program (CASA). The organization has served thousands of children since its founding in 1986.

Our mission is to provide stability and hope to abused and neglected children by being a powerful voice in their lives. There are almost 200 children in our local foster care systems waiting for an Advocate.

To find out how you can make a difference in the life of a child, come to our orientation:
