Every May we recognize National Foster Care Month, and here in Fresno and Madera Counties there are over 2,500 children in the foster care system. We want to thank everyone for all the work you do each day to make a difference. We understand that while you may not always see the fruit of your labor, know that your advocacy creates ripples in the lives of the children you serve.
In your work, you carry the heart of CASA as you help ensure that our children are not just surviving, but also thriving. While the foster care system in Fresno and Madera Counties provides many up-hill battles, CASA has the volunteers and the staff needed to face those challenges.
"A volunteer is a person who can see what others cannot see; who can feel what most do not feel. Often, such
gifted persons do not think of themselves as volunteers, but as citizens - citizens in the fullest sense: partners in civilization"
