Yolo CASA: The only way out is one child at a time

欧洲杯竞猜Two weeks ago today, many Americans learned that Kobe Bryant’s helicopter crashed on the way to his 13-year-old daughter’s basketball game, killing the pilot and all nine passengers on board. In addition to the deaths of Bryant and his young daughter, Gigi, we also learned in the subsequent coverage that four other families’ lives changed […]

Yolo CASA: Will you resolve to do something different in 2020?

Each year around this time I can’t help but notice — the greenbelts are full of joggers, the produce section in the grocery store is full of a few more healthy eaters, and everyone is opening doors for one another. The new year often brings with it vows of being a better version of ourselves. […]

Yolo CASA: What we do for love

An estimated 49 million Americans hit the road (and skies) for Thanksgiving travel this year. As the holiday weekend approached, you may remember that the news was filled with stories about a bad snowstorm on the East Coast, and rains on the West Coast that would likely cause thousands of flight delays, cancellations and traffic […]

Yolo CASA: Volunteers help foster kids find their voices

欧洲杯竞猜Kylie is a 13-year-old girl placed out-of-county in a group home. Recently, her CASA moved out of the area and had to resign from her case. Since Kylie was placed so far out of Yolo County, we could not immediately serve her with a new CASA volunteer. Now, this is the point where a story […]

Yolo CASA: Thank you for being the one

On Sept. 28, dozens of members of the Yolo County community gathered in the beautiful gardens of Park Winters and helped us achieve our most successful fundraising auction yet. The theme for the evening was, “Be the One.” Our message: Anyone with a big heart can help a foster child by becoming a CASA volunteer […]

Yolo CASA: It starts with the kids

欧洲杯竞猜Even in the very early grades, I noticed my kids had back-to-school radar. After all, there were a lot of clues. We always went shopping for new clothes to fit their rapidly growing bodies. Then there was the mail. Each day, as the school year was coming around, my girls would start to care a […]

Yolo CASA: Connections are life-changing

By Tracy Fauver Special to The Enterprise As I write this month’s column, two mass shootings have again rocked our nation. Like everyone else, these events leave me saddened, shaken to my core, and in deep thought about our future. After these types of events, in a quest for deeper understanding and comfort, two questions […]

Yolo CASA: My call to action

A little over a week ago, Davis’ streets were lined with red, white and blue as families happily celebrated the 243rd birthday of America’s independence. The Fourth of July is always bittersweet for me because as I see happy families decorate their bikes and strollers and wave their flags, I can’t help but think about […]

Yolo CASA: Volunteer gives a gift he wished he’d had

Ah, June. For many kids, it’s a month filled with excitement over the last day of school, summer camps, vacations with family, and plenty of time spent in swimming pools, parks, and other fun places. Regular readers of this column know that I often remind them about how different special times like these can be […]

Yolo CASA: A bigger day of giving

At Yolo County CASA, you could argue that we had two Big Days of Giving this year… Monique Straws is a former foster youth, and regular readers might recognize parts of the story I am about to tell. Monique and her twin sister were born addicted to heroin and cocaine. Monique describes a lonely childhood […]

Yolo CASA: Help reduce effects of abuse and neglect

If I asked you what in the world kills between four and seven children in the United States each day, what would be your first thought? Cancer? Car accidents? It’s troubling to even think about the topics above, let alone hear the real answer. The truth is, the four to seven children I mentioned above […]

Yolo CASA: Change to change a foster child’s life

欧洲杯竞猜March is upon us and the feeling of spring is on the horizon. Spring brings with it hope, new beginnings and an all-around feeling of cheer. And at Yolo County CASA, we have a lot to be excited about. First, I am happy to report that we just wrapped up our largest CASA volunteer training […]

Yolo CASA: They decided now is the time

Out of everyone I know, I can confidently say that I know people who love Valentine’s Day and I know people who hate it, but I really don’t know anyone who feels neutral. No matter how you slice it, Valentine’s Day brings up feelings. And for foster kids, those feelings involve quite a bit of […]

Yolo CASA: Resolve to make a huge difference in a child’s life

It’s that time of year again. The greenbelts are full of joggers, gym memberships are at an all-time high and the self-help section of the library is a bit more crowded than usual. New Year’s resolutions are funny things — most of the time we make them by looking at the ways we think we […]
