CASA is experiencing one of the largest numbers of referrals in 20 years, of abused and neglected children who are entering the child welfare system afraid and alone. CASA is seeking volunteers today. 
CASA has over  60 youth awaiting your friendship and advocacy, which can bring a life changing relationship to them, and the list continues to grow. As little as 10 hours a month can make a child's life brighter. Our Spring training begins April 19th. Visitwww.sonomacasa.org or call us at 565-6375.
 
CASAs (Court Appointed Special Advocates) are volunteers and ordinary citizens from our community, like you, doing extraordinary work. CASA advocates establish stable relationships with foster children, getting to know their unique history and making informed recommendations to the courts.
 
When a child has an advocate, she is more likely to get needed services - and a permanent, stable home. Are you eager to make a difference in a child's life? Become a volunteer.
