“I am so honored to be on the team at Marin CASA and to join in the incredible work of the Marin CASA staff, board, and volunteers. CASAs are able to bring warmth, consistency and justice to a family who is experiencing trauma and loss. They are able to build on strengths already present in the family and young person to support them in their healing. There is nothing more powerful than a loving, supportive community who shows up for each other. I am so grateful for the community at Marin CASA and the work they do on behalf of children and families in Marin County. “
