Having been both an employee of the local CASA of Sonoma County, and continually providing professional website design & maintenance services as a volunteer (to present), I have found this organization to run "lean and mean". Meaning, this organization works hard, very hard, for each and every donation it receives; There are no extravagances; And, it uses that money very wisely, thus allowing the largest portion to go directly to the children in need. The clients of CASA are children who are abused and/or neglected in Sonoma County, and this organization provides a personal advocate for each child, guiding them through the court system, and advocating for all their needs, such as schooling and medical. The Honorable Judges of Sonoma County REALLY listen to what reports, recommendations and news the volunteer "CASA's" bring to the courtroom on behalf of the child. Often, social workers do not have enough time to dedicate as much as a CASA can bring to the case, so this is very valuable information that can shape the future of a young person. Together, with a whole team of CASA's, the volunteer advisers, the volunteer supervisors, and all the rest of those who work together, help to build a promising future for these children. Consider becoming a volunteer CASA, an intern, a donor, an in-kind donor, a corporate donor, or volunteer for various fundraising functions throughout the year. There are so many ways to help, just give them a call 707-565-6375 or visit http://sonomacasa.org/ for more information. Thank you!
