Protecting children and advocating for brighter futures.

RAPPAHANNOCK CASA trains volunteer child advocates to speak up for the safety and needs of children involved in court cases because of parental abuse or neglect. We serve children in Fredericksburg, King George, Spotsylvania and Stafford. Most children we serve are in foster care, while some are at home under protective orders or Child in Need of Services petitions.

COVID-19: We've issued new guidance to our volunteers about how to safely advocate for children during the outbreak. Please click here for details and resources for families. We are committed to protecting and promoting the well-being of children while minimizing health risks.
