After a Little Sister in the local Big Brothers Big Sisters program spoke to the congregation at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of San Luis Obispo County, members donated $1,767 to support the agency and its mentoring programs.

“We are grateful to Unitarian Universalist Fellowship for helping us fulfill our mission to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever,” said Anna Boyd-Bucy, executive director of the organization.

Fifteen new volunteer advocates and mentors, and a new staff member were added to the Court Appointed Special Advocates organization. They were sworn in by Juvenile Court Judge Linda Hurst.

They will be assigned to an abused, neglected or abandoned child or sibling group, or to a young adult who recently has been in foster care.

CASA conducts complete background checks on all volunteers before providing the initial training.
