Advocates for Children

Each year, 600-800 San Mateo County children enter the foster care system as a result of abuse and neglect. Advocates for Children, a local non-profit located in San Mateo, California, trains and supports Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteers (CASA) who mentor and speak up for these children. CASA workers are volunteers that work with the court and the foster homes to see that the children are not lost in the system and that their needs and wants are heard. At the Intero Foundation, we believe that the work Advocates for Children provides is important and vital to the future success of those children in the foster care system.  That's why we are proud to present a check to Advocates for Children for their tireless support of the children in our community.
