Our amazing CASA Volunteers make a huge difference in the lives of foster children every day. They inspire and motivate. They are role models and advocates. They connect one-on-one and they are the only consistent relationship a child has during such a rough time. But most importantly, our San Mateo County CASA’s listen to the child they are serving when no one else is listening.
Every month, we like to spotlight one of these amazing individuals as CASA of the Month. This month we are pleased to feature Guy Beyrouti.
Like, comment, and share to help honor this fantastic CASA Volunteer as well as spread awareness of what being a CASA for a foster child really is like and how incredible the process is not only for the child, but for the CASA.
