As with most of life, it can be what you put into it. CASA of Sonoma County offers not just the opportunity to improve the life of a child, through improving the child's experience of being in the "system," accompanying them through some of the most difficult years of their life, but this program also offers the volunteer the chance to be the change that he or she wants to see for their local community. The "system" is overwhelmed and CASA volunteers often become the most consistent presence in the life of an at risk youth. Sonoma County's program offers tons of support through reviews, ongoing education about relevant issues, and volunteer accountability and recognition. There is a high degree of emphasis placed on integrity and reputation, on empowerment and collaboration. This is an organization that truly embodies its mission.
