A Home Within- CASA Therapy Project

A Home Within and CASA of Contra Costa County have partnered to provide mental health services to foster children and youth in California through the A Home Within–CASA Therapy Project (ACTP). The ACTP provides California foster youth with one-on-one, stable, and committed relationships with volunteer psychotherapists who provide free weekly teletherapy and are supported by A Home Within. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) provide one-on-one mentorship and support youth in engaging with the courts, social workers, and other service providers.

Each ACTP volunteer therapist will:

  • Receive regular group and individual clinical consultation
  • Have access to at least two free continuing education events per month
  • Be welcomed to A Home Within’s nationwide network of professionals
