I have been a volunteer advocate for a teenage boy, now a young man, for the past four years. The SFCASA training and my creative staff supervisor have been instrumental to me on this journey. SFCASA brings stability and opportunity to foster youth whose lives can be really chaotic. My youth has helped me to see new perspectives and be more aware of the broader community. Though not always easy, it has been truly rewarding to get to know and share in the challenges and accomplishments of my CASA youth. My husband, Mark, and I are honored to support SFCASA and value how critical it is for every child to be able to count on a consistent adult.
