Transcript

Voices for Children has just launched its largest volunteer recruitment ever, with the goal of a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) for every foster child in San Diego county by 2016.

By this summer they hope to recruit a volunteer for each of the 360 children deemed in urgent need of a special advocate. It's called Campaign 360.

While Voices for Children has been around for 30 years - they're still working to raise awareness of what they do, who they serve and educate people about the role of CASA's and how they change children's lives.
