CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates of Santa Barbara County)
The Mission of CASA - the Court Appointed Special Advocates of Santa Barbara County is to assure a safe, permanent, nurturing home for every abused or neglected child by providing a highly trained volunteer to advocate for them in the court system.

The goal of CASA of Santa Barbara County is to prevent abused, neglected, and abandoned children from becoming lost in the Juvenile Dependency system and working to find them safe, permanent homes as soon as possible. They work carefully to match a CASA volunteer with a child to ensure that the child's best interest is served.

News-Press Holiday Fund
The News-Press Holiday Fund was established in 1949 by former News-Press owner Thomas Storke, who was shocked at the cost of a wheelchair after he broke his leg. Since then, the fund has brought in more than $2 million in donations.
All of the money raised goes to the charities. Throughout the drive, the News-Press periodically publishes the names of donors. Contributions may be mailed to: News-Press Holiday Fund, P.O. Box 1359, Santa Barbara 93102-1359.
