BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A local organization will give the community a chance to enjoy a cup of coffee while learning about how to give children in need a voice of hope.
The Court Appointed Special Advocate, or CASA, will host a special event at the Starbucks on 1201 24th Street on July 7 at 7:30 a.m., hoping to bring awareness to the high rate of abused and neglected children in Kern County.
The organization gives outreach opportunities, training classes for volunteers and the hope to protect and ensure each child has a safe and permanent home.
