Valley CASA Program
The Valley CASA program serves the Mat-Su Borough, which includes the communities of Palmer, Wasilla, Big Lake, Sutton, Willow and Glennallen.
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 Valley CASA program served 65 children/youth, from infants to youth over 18 years old. The gender of children/youth served was fairly even male/female. Fifty-five percent of those served were White and 38% were Alaska Native/Native American.
“I have a kid who, high school freshman, has a brand new [special education plan]. Never got caught before. Was never in a school long enough to have it caught. So, those are things that we can do when we put [in] the time and energy and we're seeing and paying attention to everything that's going on.”
-Valley CASA Volunteer
In 2021, there were 28 active Valley 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.
