CASA summer training – sign up now



CASA of Sonoma County helps foster children heal so they can live happier, safer lives. CASA volunteers – Court-Appointed Special Advocates – make sure foster kids don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service systems, or languish in unsupportive foster homes. CASA volunteers stay with children until their court case is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home.

During National Foster Care Month, CASA invites the community to learn more about the work of CASA and consider becoming a CASA volunteer. If you care and have about 10 hours a month to spend, being a CASA can be a very gratifying work. A CASA is a powerful voice in a child’s life. According to Executive Director Millie Gilson, there are approximately 155 CASA volunteers, and she hopes to recruit another 35 with the next training.

The summer volunteer training takes place over three and a half days beginning on July 14, 10 a.m.-1:30 p.m., then running July 19-21, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Classes are held at CASA’s office at the Los Guilicos complex across from Oakmont. For more information and to sign up, contact Gilson at 565-6375 or info@sonomacasa.org.

Help end abuse and neglect so that every foster child has a chance to thrive. To find out more about CASA of Sonoma County go to www.sonomacasa.org.
