CASA of Santa Barbara County Board Member and Former Board President
CASA is necessary because there are hundreds of abused and neglected children in our communities in need of an advocate. CASA gives a voice to these children who cannot speak for themselves. The good news is…..CASA works! The outcomes for children who have a CASA volunteer advocating for them in juvenile court are drastically better than for those who do not. CASA makes a difference….it gives hope to children who have little or no hope for a better tomorrow. I am proud of the level of commitment, dedication and care demonstrated by our incredible staff and volunteers who give their time and their hearts to improving the lives of children in need. As we celebrate 20 years of service, my birthday wish for CASA is that those reading this message will call CASA to find out more about the needs of abuse and neglected children in our community, find out more about the difference CASA makes and find out what you can do to help!
You can change the trajectory of a child's life by giving that child a precious gift—a little bit of your time.
Become an advocate in our community to help a child who has been removed from their home due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment. It’s worth it… to make a difference in the life of a child.
