CASA Santa Cruz is an amazing program. As a volunteer, we get some of the best training I've ever received. The staff are not only supportive, they provide fun things volunteers can do to help CASA and hang out. But of course, the biggest thing is how dedicated everyone involved in this program is to helping the foster youth of our county. Everyone works tirelessly to help these kids out - education, clothing, special needs that come up, help with placement, everything. I've never been so impressed with a non-profit, and I've been involved with many (and even ran one for a few years!)
Hola soy María Virgen estoy interesada en ser voluntaria de esta programa inglés not is perfecto . He trabajado con niños más de 10 años
There is no better organization than CASA Santa Cruz! It's a win-win-win for kiddos who have been removed from their homes due to neglect or abuse, volunteer advocates who spend time with kiddos, and the community which benefits from healthy relationships as a result.
The staff is supportive and caring of kids and advocates. Please consider lending your time and spirit to CASA Santa Cruz.
Court Appointed Special Advocates of Santa Cruz County deserves to be recognized for the outstanding
support of children and families it provides. I have never been involved with such a dedicated, efficient and caring organization that puts kids first. As a retired teacher I saw the benefits firsthand to my students in foster care. As a volunteer I experience the benefits to everyone when children are prioritized.
I volunteered with CASA of Santa Cruz County this past year and was deeply impressed with the leadership team and staff. They demonstrated firm accountability, solid business management and focus alongside the obvious passion and care for the children they serve day in and day out. I have volunteered with and served on the board of many non-profits: few exhibit the ability to match their love of the work with such astute business management.
Can't believe the lives this organization changes during such a difficult time of life. ABSOLUTELY LOVE everything they do yo support the children and volunteers.
CASA of Santa Cruz is a truly amazing organization. We recruit, train and place volunteers to provide hope and stability for children and youth in the foster care system.
I've been involved with a lot of non-profits over the years. Never have I been involved with an organization that has so much integrity and heart. They are thoughtful stewards with donors' time and money. As a volunteer, this is one of the most fulfilling and important things I've ever been able to do. My life is forever changed by the girl I was able to serve.
The good that this organization does and the great, caring staff, volunteers and board is immeasurable.
I am part of Friends of CASA, an auxiliary of CASA that helps raise funds to specifically help CASA children in the foster care system. CASA is a much needed and valuable asset to our foster youth and to the advocates who selflessly offer their time and care to support these children. The staff, Board of Directors, advocates, Friends, and everyone involved with CASA are dedicated to helping these children through a very difficult time.
I could go on for days about CASA, what it provides these wonderful children and the service to the community.
I have been an advocate for ten years, and my involvement with this organization has truly been the most valuable and rewarding experience of my life. There is no doubt in my mind that the advocates play a major role in the positive outcome of these children's futures. Not only have I learned a great deal about the challenges these children and their families face everyday, but I have also learned to be more objective and not judgmental. My compassionate side has grown enormously. I know I have received more than I have given by having the privilege of knowing these children. CASA has and always will have a very special place in my heart.
