The latest news and information from Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Fresno and Madera Counties. 

Message from the Executive Director

Dear Friends,

As June begins we are excited to host our first summer session of New Advocate training this month. This moves us from hosting twice yearly trainings to three sessions of training which will allow us to train more volunteers throughout the year to advocate for more foster youth in our community. Our new advocates will complete 40 hours of training over the course of two weeks beginning on Monday, June 12th. Their training ends with a swearing-in ceremony that we are hosting on Tuesday, June 27th at Pardini's Banquets.
Summer also brings with it preparations for our Crab Feed Fundraiser being held on Friday, September 15th. If you haven't already submitted for your sponsorship, table or ticket purchase I encourage you to secure your spot for this exciting event soon! For any questions regarding our Crab Feed event you can contact our office at 559-244-6485.
We wish you all a safe and relaxing summer!  
Nathan Lee, Executive Director.
