Incredible program staff that care about the kids and volunteers. A real depth of knowledge and professionalism. An agency wholly committed to improving the lives of foster children and youth in the community.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
professional, passionate, and effective.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
give every foster child in San Mateo County an Advocate.
