CASA Sacramento

November 3rd, 2011

11-3-11To the left is a poem written by a 14 year old girl assigned to CASA in Sacramento.
Carol Noreen is the Executive Director of CASA; Court Appointed Special Advocate office in Sacramento. Carol is very dedicated to protecting children. She had a full schedule when I called and no time to meet with me, so she cancelled her lunch to make our meeting happen. Our meeting focused on prevention, breaking the cycle by prevention.
“Family Finding and Engagement” is a great tool to locate, engage, connect and support family resources for youth. This is one of the very important programs that CASA uses to better the lives of children in their charge.
The focus of teaching children at the earliest moment, and all through their life, to respect and care for one another, is the only way to break the cycle of abuse.
Abuse is a learned behavior. Kindness is a learned behavior. Which one should we be teaching our children?
