New and Improved CASA Store! 

The CASA store has a new look! The week long project saw the store cleaned out and revamped. Employees from Cisco and Applied Materials removed old toys, clothes and supplies from the store and helped clean out and organize what was left. Banana Republic was brought in to design the new look for the store as well as providing some items.

 

We would like to send a big thank you to Cisco, Applied Materials, and Banana Republic for all of their help with the project. Bring your foster youth by the store and check out our new look!

#SmashHighSchool: Summer Bridge Camp Prepares Students for 9th Grade

Transitioning from middle school to high school is never easy, but for kids in foster care who have experienced abuse and neglect, adjusting to a new school can be overwhelming.

 

That’s why Child Advocates co-hosted a two-day Summer Bridge Camp to prepare 12 foster youth for their freshman year in high school. Students toured the Santa Clara University campus, created a virtual reality (VR) experience developed a personalized education plan and received a laptop and backpack full of school supplies.
