What People Say

Kenneth G. Peterson

Former Presiding Judge of the Juvenile Court Superior Court of California County of Sacramento, “CASA volunteers provide a critically needed voice in court for abused and neglected children. They help right the wrongs committed upon these vulnerable children and give them deserved respect and protection. The only problem is that we don’t have nearly enough of them.”

Robert Wilson

Former Executive Director of Sacramento Child Advocates, Inc., “The role of a CASA volunteer in one of our kid’s life is truly remarkable. The one to one relationship clearly has a positive and dramatic impact on the children and is invaluable to our attorneys and the court as they attempt to charter a path of success for the children. Having a CASA is having a better chance for success. It is unfortunate that we have over 4500 children in the foster care system in Sacramento and not enough CASA volunteers. We look forward to working with CASA to expand the number of CASA volunteers and their continued effort to make a difference, one child at a time.”

Paula Brown

CASA, “Being a CASA means making a difference in a child’s life. Teaching them they are important…to me, to themselves, and to the world.”
