Review for CASA of Sonoma County (Court Appointed Special Advocates of Sonoma County), Kenwood, CA, USA
Volunteering for CASA has been a very profound and soulful experience. Meeting the children, getting to know them and allowing them to get to know me, has been a richly rewarding experience. (I sincerely wanted to adopt one of the children.) It is wonderful to donate money to such an organization and I can't encourage that enough, but to donate your time and your heart is much better, when possible. The staff members, volunteer supervisors and executive director are always available and more than willing to lend support and expert guidance. I have never had the pleasure of dealing with such a compassionate, professional and effective group of individuals. Working with the children is such a richly rewarding experience, I believe everyone should become involved in doing so, or at least be involved with CASA. I believe you will see yourself in the eyes of a child, whatever their background, and grow a little yourself as did I. I will always stay involved and support the great work of CASA of Sonoma County does, contribute however I can, and encourage others to do so as well. There are children out there right now that will change your life for the better, if you will step forward to change theirs. You can make all the difference in the world, TODAY! God bless.
