WELCOME NEW VOLUNTEERS!!
On Monday we were lucky enough to swear in 16 new CASA volunteers! This is our biggest class yet and shows how dedicated we are to growing to be a bigger and better CASA program. We are thrilled to welcome these new advocates to the CASA of El Paso family and await the difference they are going to make in the life of more of El Paso's foster youth.
