On April 18, we celebrated the graduation of 14 new Latino CASA volunteers with the help of Judge Clifford Cretan. CASA of San Mateo County is the only CASA Program in the country that provides training and support for volunteers completely in Spanish. As we strive to serve all of our children and youth, we believe in the importance of providing them with mentors that share their cultural background and language. Our Latino CASA Volunteers also provide culturally relevant information to professionals in the case and to the court.
We know our volunteers will do a great job supporting our Latino children and youth. Congratulations to our new volunteers, bienvenidos a la familia CASA!
