John Baker is a volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for the past few years and he described how a CASA helps foster kids navigate the court system. He says that only 48% of these foster children graduate from high school and only about 3% graduate from college. He appreciated the fact that DMSB supported Voices For Children. He said there are about 2500 CASAs in San Diego county and they need lot more CASAs. It costs about $2,500 to train each CASA. The training takes about 35 hours of online courses.
And finally, we had our very own President Liam Murphy come extra prepared with a holster to secure his gavel that he will have to give up in few weeks :-).
