Rating: 5 stars   2 reviews 444

Address:

3715 Atherton Road No 1 Rocklin CA 95765 USA

Mission:

The organization's mission is to serve young children who have come out of abusive homes and by court order are assigned to this organization for assistance in child care and possible placement within a foster home. Grants and private donations received are used primarily to cover the costs of training volunteers, staff, and filing fees with the court for legal documents necessary to assist these children in foster home placement. Funds are also used to cover expenses incurred in the process of volunteers who help these children to be taken to court for hearings, meeting probable foster parents, arranging intermediate shelter and food provisions in a safe place.

Programs:

The casa program in placer county works to prevent abused, neglected, and abandoned children from becoming lost in the juvenile dependency system, finding them safe, permanent homes as soon as possible. This is done through training and supervising casa volunteers who work with foster youth in placer county, where a majority of closed cases result in reunification of children with birth parents, adoption or guardianship.

I have been a Adult 2 Youth Mentor for the past 3 1/2 years. It has been an enlightening experience in that as I have "put myself out there for our teens" the return for me has been life changing. I became a Child Advocates volunteer due to my own personal experience as a mother with a former teen involved in the Juvenile Justice system. The opportunity to give back has been my pleasure. As I tell my "mentee" youth "I have buckled my seat belt and I am in this with you for the journey ahead." Kudos to the small army of wonderful staff at Child Advocates of Placer County for your dedication to the youth of Placer County. I heartfully bless this wonderful non-profit for the work that they do to enrich the lives of our foster youth, families in need, youth at risk, youth in probation, youth aging out of the foster care system, deserving children and youth up to age 22.
