Welcome To Our Newest Class of CASA Volunteers!

On Thursday, June 9, 2016 we swore in another new class of 27 CASA volunteers!

These community members -- including a former nurse, restaurant manager, and an attorney -- will soon be matched with a foster youth in need of a CASA. Their commitment will help us to reduce the number of youth on the waitlist for a CASA and ensure that the voices of these children are heard. Scroll through the photos below to take a look at the exciting day! 

The SFUSD Policy Change That Will Help Foster Youth Graduate With A Diploma

Earlier this year, San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) became the first school district in the state to grant high school diplomas to students who did not pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE). With this change, more students left SFUSD with a high school diploma, enabling them to pursue postsecondary education or join the workforce with a secondary credential.
