CASA Staff Expands
We are excited to welcome Donna Hagins! She has joined the CASA staff as an Advocate Supervisor. Donna brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience, and is looking forward to supporting our amazing volunteers.
Success Story
After nearly two years in foster care, one more CASA child has achieved permanency through adoption! In this case, her CASA advocated for much-needed educational support, tutoring, and a visitation schedule more conducive to the child's needs. The two also spent plenty of time together pursuing the girl's passion for creating slime and unicorn crafts.
We are confident this young lady has an extremely bright future ahead of her, and we wish her all the best!

CASA Holiday Project
Together, we are making the holidays brighter for every foster child from San Benito County! If you are interested in supporting this project, there are a few ways to get involved: "Adopt" a child by shopping for their wish list; donate gift cards, or you can make a monetary donation to CASA's Holiday Project through the 12 Days of Giving that will be matched.
12 Days of Giving
Monetary donations made to CASA between Dec. 1 - Dec. 12 will be matched by United Way of San Benito County and generous business sponsors! All donations support the CASA Holiday Project and children's needs throughout the year including birthdays, graduations, milestones, and extra-curricular activities for which there is very limited funding. It truly is the gift that keeps giving! For more information or to get involved with the Holiday Project & 12 Days of Giving, please contact CASA at 831-637-4992 or visit casasanbenito.org .
