Review for CASA of Sonoma County (Court Appointed Special Advocates of Sonoma County), Kenwood, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with and supporting the CASA organization in Sonoma County for about 10 years. I have the most respect and admiration of the work that CASA takes on to work with the Court system to represent children who have no other advocate when they are separated from their families. CASA boosts the confidence of the youngest of this displaced population and provides guidance through the labyrinth of the system to make their lives meaningful and positive -- and eventually to a successful independence. I can't speak enough of the great positive impact that this particular organization i.e. CASA/Sonoma County has had on the community and lives of so many children.

Review for CASA of Sonoma County (Court Appointed Special Advocates of Sonoma County), Kenwood, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with the CASA organization in Sonoma County for about 10 years. I was trained to serve as an Advocate, served as a Board Member, and assisted in planning Annual Fund Raisers for the organization. During that time, I consistently became more & more aware of the great need, not only in our community, but nationwide, for support of the great numbers of children who are without a permanent family life. CASA provides a great asset to the Court System by providing one on one advocacy for each child - both within the Court System and all aspects of the child's Life -- living environment, health, education, and well being. CASA also provides assistance for the transition of the child out of the System and into the World. Sonoma County CASA Director, Millie Gilson, is miraculous in making certain that no detail is missed, that services are provided as required, and go beyond to provide inclusion of children to share their amazing progress that can be accomplished with support and encouragement from CASA and their community.
