Who We Serve

We believe that every child in Alaska's child welfare system who needs a CASA volunteer should have a CASA volunteer.

 

In 2021, the Fairbanks CASA program served 66 children/youth, from infants to youth older than 18 years, roughly half of which were Alaska Native/Native American. 

Our Volunteers

"My assigned youth was sent to the residential treatment center in Fairbanks… and was having a very hard time coping with his new situation. I'd like to think I had a positive impact. Even though he would look at me like, ‘Who is this old white dude and why is he here?’ and stuff like that, I just kept showing up and I think he got the sense that I wasn’t gonna go away.”

-Fairbanks CASA Volunteer

 

In 2021, there were 23 active Anchorage CASA volunteers ranging from young professionals to stay at home parents to retirees. It is our goal to honor the unique history and culture of each child, and as such, we seek CASA volunteers from diverse backgrounds.
