Refer a Child

Although formal requests for CASA referrals may only be completed and submitted by the dependent’s or ward’s attorney, county social worker or juvenile probation officer, and judicial hearing officers, SFCASA understands and appreciates the vital role others play in the lives of young people.

If you are a support person for a youth in foster care (a parent or other relative, non-related caregiver, educator or other service provider), please convey your wish for a CASA referral to the youth’s attorney, county social worker or juvenile probation officer, or judge at an upcoming hearing, and ask that they please submit a referral to SFCASA.

Please note that these referrals are not for CASA volunteers, but for youth in need of a CASA. If you are a San Francisco dependency or delinquency attorney, county social worker or juvenile probation officer, or judicial hearing officer and would like to refer a minor or non-minor* dependent youth for CASA services, you can download the form here

*If you are submitting a referral for a non-minor dependent, please download the additional consent form here and work with your client to complete the consent and attach the completed consent form to the referral. 

Please contact SFCASA with questions regarding the submission of a referral or to follow up about the status of a referral.
