A Place to Work

CASA is in urgent need of adequate office space in Santa Barbara or Goleta! Currently, its Santa Barbara-based staff work in a building provided by the county, but the building needs extensive repairs, and the county plans to demolish it when they build a new courthouse. The CASA office is ideally a comfortable place for volunteer advocates to meet with their CASA supervisor and a space to connect with donors and community members. If you can provide private office space of at least 800 square feet, CASA will provide an in-kind donation receipt for the tax-deductible value of your generous donation.
