The generous employees of Bay Federal Credit Union sponsored and installed pinwheels on the CASA house fence in honor of Child Abuse Prevention Month.
Every pinwheel is a reminder of the 400 abused children in foster care every year. The pinwheels are a physical representation of the hope we have for a safe and happy childhood for each child.

Not everyone can be a CASA volunteer, but everyone can be an advocate by taking steps to make our community safer for children. Working together, we can prevent abuse and neglect so that every child in Santa Cruz County has an opportunity to live and thrive in a safe, caring, healthy home.
