In San Luis Obispo County, more than 460 children are under the jurisdiction of the juvenile court because they were abused, neglected, or abandoned by their parents. Many of these children live in foster homes, moving from one residence to another with appalling frequency. CASA’s trained volunteers provide a consistent source of support to these children, advocating for needed services and appropriate placement until a permanent home is found.
Funds raised at Hope for the Future are used for recruiting, screening, training, and supervising volunteer advocates. CASA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
