Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is calling for more volunteers to help San Diego County foster children.

Voices for Children has just launched its largest volunteer recruitment ever, with the goal of a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) for every foster child in San Diego county by 2016.

By this summer they hope to recruit a volunteer for each of the 360 children deemed in urgent need of a special advocate. It's called Campaign 360.

While Voices for Children has been around for 30 years - they're still working to raise awareness of what they do, who they serve and educate people about the role of CASA's and how they change children's lives.
