Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Orange County displayed three thousand pinwheels on Sunday, May 21st, between 9am and 4pm at Dana Point Harbor (Dana Point Harbor Drive, Dana Point, CA 92629). This display was held in conjunction with Foster Care Awareness Month celebrated all through the month of May.

The pinwheels are representative of the children CASA-OC is currently serving with a trained and supported CASA volunteer (500), the children who have been referred to our agency from the Dependency Court and are currently on a wait list (250), and the remaining 2,250 children in the foster care system who make up some of the most vulnerable members of our community.

This outreach event is put on with the help and cooperation of the OC Parks Department and volunteers from the Capital Group and PIMCO. CASA-OC envisions a future where every child who wants a CASA volunteer to advocate and mentor them will have one.

Can you help make a difference in the life of a child in foster care by sponsoring a pinwheel for as little as $5?
