CASA Holiday Project & 12 Days of Giving

Thank you again for making the 2016 CASA Holiday Project a success! Not only are we providing foster children with gifts and essential items, we are also giving them a sense of belonging and tradition. 

In case you missed it, be sure to check out our holiday   photo collage here!

CASA Awarded Bikes for SBC Foster Youth

As you may imagine, bicycles are a frequently requested item around the holidays, but can be cost prohibitive. However, this past winter, CASA was able to provide 22 bikes to foster children from San Benito County. Thank you Turning Wheels for Kids and John Smith Road Landfill for making this possible, and for making the holidays that much brighter for our foster youth!

We are pleased to introduce the newest advocates to the CASA team! Pictured: (L to R) Saul Ferreyra, Brenda Ramirez, Karen Lopes, Billie Barrett, Jonathan DeFranco, and CASA Executive Director Esther Curtice.

Booster Seats Needed!

CASA is in need of booster seats that can be used for children weighing between 40-100 lbs. As we prepare to expand advocacy services for younger youth, we will need booster seats in order for advocates to safely transport children. Due to safety regulations, donated booster seats must be new in original packing. Booster seats may be dropped off at our office, located at 829 San Benito Street, Suite 200 or shipped directly to us.  Thank you for helping us keep children safe!
