A Child Heard. A Life Changed.

A Child Heard. A Life Changed.
Annual Report for 2009–10
“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder,
he needs the companionship of at least one adult
who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy,
excitement and mystery of the world we live in.”
Rachel Carson
Dear Friends,
With this report, we are pleased to update you on the activities of Voices for Children. This has been
a pivotal time for our agency and we thank the thousands of volunteers, donors, and friends who have
made our success possible.
Voices for Children believes that every abused and neglected child deserves the highest quality advocacy.
To that end, our Board of Directors is pursuing an ambitious initiative, Serve Every Child, which will
more than double our operations and enable us to triple the number of children served with volunteer
advocates by 2015. As part of this plan for growth, a new mission statement was developed:
Voices for Children transforms the lives of abused children in San Diego County
by providing them with volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs).
The companion vision statement and our declaration of values and purposes are also in this report.
Voices for Children’s services are unique in San Diego and we have been widely recognized as one
of the finest CASA programs in the United States. The Judicial Council of California’s Center for
Families, Children and the Courts, based in San Francisco, recently conducted a detailed site visit and
evaluation of Voices for Children. In their praise, it was stated that Voices “…continues to be a model
program exhibiting innovative practices, engaged staff and Board members, and strong relationships
with your court. Your continued commitment to growing the CASA program and your consistency of
leadership are invaluable to ensuring the high quality of services for California’s foster children.”
This level of excellence extends to our volunteers and donors. Our volunteers are a diverse group, from
retired grandfathers to college coeds; our donors range from individuals who give $5 a month to the
Leichtag Family Foundation which awarded a landmark, three-year, $1,000,000 grant in late 2010.
We are grateful to each volunteer and donor who believes in our cause and helps us to help foster
children. Working together, we are a powerful force progressing toward our goal to ensure that every
child gets what he or she deserves—a safe, permanent home and hope for a decent childhood. With
your help, we can make that happen.
Mission – Voices for Children transforms the lives of abused children in
San Diego County by providing them with volunteer Court Appointed
Special Advocates (CASAs).
Vision – Voices for Children believes that every child deserves a safe and
permanent home, and to that end, will provide a CASA to every child
in the foster care system who needs one, monitor every court file in the
system, and advocate to improve the lives of San Diego County’s foster
children.
Values and Purposes we subscribe to:
• We believe that every child in Juvenile Court should have a volunteer
advocating for his or her best interests and providing vital information to judges;
• We provide the highest level training, supervision, and continuing education for volunteers;
• We annually review and
monitor the case files of every child in foster care in
San Diego County;
• We increase public awareness about the
foster care system; and
With our appreciation,

A Story About a
Child Heard and a
Life Changed
Lance looks much older than he is,
standing five feet tall at nine years old.
He came in to foster care due to severe
neglect—his open wounds were untended;
there was no electricity, water, or food
in the house; and his parents fought
regularly and violently. Lance could be
violent too—flipping over tables, desks,
and chairs. It was the only way he knew
to express his anger and frustration
about being separated from his sister
and parents. At the request of a judge,
Lance was matched with CASA Tom from
Voices for Children.
At one point, Lance was placed with a
guardian, but wound up back in foster
care when the guardian died in a car
accident. The social worker started a
reunification plan with Lance’s mother,
yet his behavior had grown so
uncontrolled, he wasn’t going to be
allowed to return home. Medications
were suggested, but CASA Tom argued
no, that Lance’s physical reactions were
anger that needed to be managed, not
masked. Tom taught Lance to fish and
encouraged him to play sports at the
Boys & Girls Club near his school.
Lance’s mother made progress and a
60-day trial living arrangement was
approved. It was very successful! With
help from CASA Tom and the other
influences he had at the Boys & Girls
Club, Lance had learned ways to manage
his emotions. He was happy to be home
with his mother and sister, and the
school, his therapist, and his mother
all reported less aggression. Now,
Lance’s case is coming up for the
court’s review and he will be officially
returned to his mother and their happier,
healthier home.

We are guilty of many errors
and many faults, but our
worst crime is abandoning
the children, neglecting the
fountain of life.
Many of the things we need can
wait. The child cannot.
Right now is the time bones
are being formed, blood is
being made, senses are being
developed.
Children Served
What is CASA?
Voices for Children serves serves San Diego County (pop: 3.1 million)
where as many as 6,000 children each year live apart from their homes
and families due to abuse and neglect; for their own safety and through
no fault of their own, these children are in the protective custody of
the court—a system called “foster care.” Foster children are at risk,
emotionally and physically, and they are in crisis. They come from every
corner of San Diego County, and represent a diverse population.
The most current demographics of the children served are as follows:
CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates. CASA programs
exist in 1,000 counties around the United States (sometimes referred to
as Guardian Ad Litems, or GALs). Each group operates independently;
however, the goal of CASA programs nationwide is to make a difference
in the lives of children in foster care.

Voices for Children works with San Diego children who have been taken
into foster care for their own safety. Through the advocacy of our highly
trained volunteer CASAs who diligently monitor cases, often in a ratio of
one CASA to one child, Voices for Children ensures that judges have the
most thorough, current information possible when making decisions about
such issues as a foster child’s living situation, visits with siblings, medical
and educational needs, and other services. By all accounts, CASAs make a
huge difference in the foster care system.
Voices for Children and its CASAs give
San Diego’s foster children the most
precious gift: the opportunity for each
child to live up to his or her potential.
One San Diego judge praised CASAs
as her “eyes and ears,” helping her
better understand the history of a case
and the child’s situation. Another
judge said CASAs “give her legs.”
Certainly, CASAs are the voice
of a child, speaking in court to be
sure the child’s unique needs are
understood.
“All kids need is a little help,
a little hope and somebody
who believes in them.”
Earvin “Magic” Johnson
Children with CASAs
2009–10
Voices for Children provided 1,105
children with CASAs last year. These
dedicated volunteers provide crucial
recommendations and reports to the
judges, helping them to make the best
decisions about a foster child’s future.
CASAs transform lives through their
advocacy in the courtroom, schools, and
in the community. In 2010-11, we anticipate
we will serve nearly 1,200 children with
CASAs.
Voices for Children is the only
San Diego County organization
designated to recruit, train, and
supervise volunteer CASAs for
foster children. With extraordinary
efficiency and dedication, a small
professional staff manages the work of
600+ volunteer advocates.
Case Assessment 2009–10
Voices for Children reviewed and
monitored the case files of 5,151 children,
writing more than 7,000 assessments
and, in many cases, requesting needed
services prior to the child being
assigned a CASA.
Three teams comprise the CASA
Program:
CASA Case Management: CASAs
provide stability and continuity to the children
through regular visits and caring attention, contributing to resiliency
in children. Our Program Supervisors guide CASAs through the Court’s
complex bureaucracy, developing a case plan for each child, assisting with
advocacy and case management, and helping find resources and services
for the children. CASAs are extremely important to the entire foster care
(continued on next page)

Every Child Deserves a Chance
at a Normal Childhood
(continued from previous page)
process. As sworn Officers of the Court, they are given privileged access
to medical, school, and court files as well as to anyone with information
about a case. With their comprehensive information about the child’s
situation, including education, the CASA provides crucial information to
the judge, through reports and court appearances. This is key to helping
the court make decisions that enable each child to be safe and successful.
“Our” children often have the most complex and difficult
cases. They are the foster children who, without the
compassionate advocacy of a CASA, would likely spend
their childhood in foster care. One example is Justin, age 5:
Voices for Children’s Program Supervisors generally oversee approximately
45-50 CASA volunteers each; they monitor the CASAs’ advocacy in
myriad ways, including editing court reports, accompanying CASAs
in court and to case conferences as well as being available by phone 24
hours a day, 7 days a week in case of a child emergency. Two recent case
management focuses include:
Fostering Futures – Voices for Children was chosen in spring 2010 by National CASA to pilot a new program, Fostering Futures. Funded through the Wal-Mart Foundation, this program helps prepare older teens, ages 14-21, for adult responsibilities and life after foster care.
Infants & Toddlers – With the help of committed funders, Voices for Children has a new focus on infants and toddlers. By assigning CASAs to the youngest dependents, Voices hopes to expedite a permanent home, whether through reunification or adoption. We believe an early intervention will break the cycle of abuse and improve outcomes for these youngest victims.
Case Assessment: Voices for Children assesses and prioritizes the case
files of all children in San Diego foster care. Our staff and volunteers
research referrals and prepare thousands of written reports annually –
evaluating, updating, and prioritizing the children’s cases. This is a critical
service for the judicial system and helps ensure the most at-risk children
get swift and proper attention.
Recruitment and Training: In order to
maintain and increase our network of volunteer
advocates and case assessors, Voices for Children
finds, screens, and trains individuals from
throughout San Diego County. Our rigorous
training program, Advocate University, is
offered eight times a year. It includes 40
hours of intense courses led by our staff
and foster care professionals, on-site visits
to juvenile court, and vital training on the
unique problems and needs of San Diego’s foster children. Upon
graduation, each CASA is carefully matched with at least one child or
sibling group and, from that time forward, he or she works to advocate
for the children’s well-being, safety, and protection by the Court.

Justin is cute, with bouncing energy and dark curly hair.
He was found living in a van with his father, dirty, hungry,
and without shoes or a shirt. His father was overwhelmed
and his mother was nowhere to be found, so Justin was
taken into foster care. Five foster homes followed in
quick succession, with the boy’s increasingly extreme
behaviors labeled first as autism, later as pervasive
developmental disorder.
A History
Voices for Children was launched in 1980 when two
crusading women — a law student, Kathryn Ashworth,
and a social worker, Elizabeth Bacon Brainard — set
up a desk in the hallway of the San Diego County
Juvenile Court, recruiting friends, Junior League, and
Bar Association Auxiliary members to review files of
children who had been placed under court jurisdiction because of parental abuse or neglect. Their goal as
volunteer advocates was to help the judges make the
best decisions for children who had no one to speak up
for them. The group embraced the volunteer advocate
model created in Seattle in 1977, joined the National
CASA Association, and began training CASAs in 1983.
Now celebrating its 30th anniversary, Voices for
Children has grown from an inspired idea by a few
dedicated citizens to one of the oldest, largest,
most-respected, and best-managed CASA
organizations in the country. As a symbol of
dedication of our CASA program, one of the
co-founders, Kathryn Ashworth, continues her work as
a CASA and recently celebrated the adoption of one
of her case children. She carries on the legacy of her
late co-founder, Elizabeth Bacon Brainard, and inspires
our volunteers with her commitment.
Justin’s social worker tracked down his mother and
started reunification services while Justin was placed in
an adoptive foster home, where the foster mother hoped
to adopt him. With the patience of the new foster mother
and the consistency of the new placement, Justin’s
behaviors improved.
Justin was matched with CASA Nancy. She had reservations
about the social worker’s reunification plan and the mother’s
lukewarm efforts. Nancy observed how Justin’s mother
struggled with his acting out and responded impatiently and
angrily to Justin, contributing to a spiral effect of worsening
behaviors. CASA Nancy prepared court reports about her
concerns, while the social worker pushed for reunification
with the birth mother. Voices for Children and CASA Nancy
firmly advocated for adoption by the foster mother,
arguing that the birth mother could not handle Justin’s
special needs and that stability in the long term would
outweigh the benefits of ties to his biological family.
After numerous court hearings and 13 reports, the judge
ruled with the CASA’s recommendation and adoption by
the foster mother went forward. The decision survived an
appeal by the birth mother, and Justin is
now thriving, beloved and well
cared-for in a stable home with
a loving adoptive mother.
The Justice noted, “Were it not
for the extraordinary efforts,
dedication, and perseverance
of Justin’s [adoptive] parent,
his CASA volunteer, and
La Cuña agency, the dependency
system may have failed this child.”

Serve Every Child
Financial Results for 2009-2010
While there are around 6,000 children in San Diego foster care each year,
it is estimated that approximately half of these children have no one—no
parent, no relatives, no family friends—to look out for the child’s best
interests. They are alone in a complicated system that can rob much of the
joy out of childhood.
Voices for Children is primarily funded by individuals, foundations, and
corporations who are solicited through a strategic plan of grants, appeals,
and special events. We do not generate any program income as our services
are free to the children.
Fortunately, Voices for Children will serve nearly 1,200 of these children
with CASAs in 2010-11, but many more children are waiting. Because of
the urgency of the need, Voices for Children’s Board of Directors met in
September 2010 and committed to the Serve Every Child vision and a careful five-year growth strategy with these key goals:
• Provide CASAs to 3,207 foster children by 2014-2015, tripling in five
years the 1,105 children served with CASAs in 2009-10;
• Continue to assess, review, and triage Court files to provide basic advocacy to every foster child in the system (6,000 annually); • Increase the number of trained volunteer advocates, so that by FY2015 we have 1,414 advocates (almost three times the current group of CASAs);
• Increase the effectiveness of the CASA Program by developing new pilot programs to serve infants, toddlers, and teens preparing to exit the system;
• Explore more efficient modes of monitoring children not assigned to CASAs, and pilot an “Early Assignment” program that would provide a CASA to a child the moment he or she entered the foster system; and
• Be a leader in the community in terms of advocating for improvements in the foster care system and raising awareness of the plight of foster children in San Diego County.
At its core, this plan keeps
one thing at the forefront:
there are thousands of abused,
abandoned, and neglected
children in San Diego who are
waiting for a CASA today.
Voices for Children has
redoubled its commitment to
provide the life-transforming
services of a CASA to every
child who needs one. We truly
want to Serve Every Child and
know that we can, with the
help and generosity of caring,
compassionate individuals in
our community.
8
To achieve the ambitious goals of Serve Every Child, Voices for Children
undertook a capacity-building plan, including a major expansion of its
development department in 2010. We sought and received a cornerstone
grant of $1,000,000 (over three years) from the Leichtag Family
Foundation in October 2010, and additional, large-scale grants have
followed, including $70,000 from the Rose Foundation and a $100,000
event sponsorship by Qualcomm for our upcoming gala, Starry, Starry
Night: Turn on your Heartlight! These provide a powerful underpinning
for expanded individual and corporate contributions. A new emphasis
on planned giving is being launched, as we look to our many friends and
donors to include Voices in their estate plans.
This new support will fuel careful and measured growth of our CASA
program between now and 2015. We have increased our focus on donor
stewardship and relationship-building that we believe will lead to repeat
donors, an expanded and broadened donor base, and ultimately to
sustainability. We are using technology in new and innovative ways to
reach out and communicate the needs and accomplishments of Voices
for Children.

Revenues in 2009-10
Revenues increased 2% over the
previous fiscal year. Voices for Children
has worked diligently to maintain
donation levels during the difficult
economy. The results for FY2010-11
should show much stronger growth.
• Gifts & Contributions
This category encompasses gifts
from individuals, corporations, and
foundations, 46% of total revenues,
primarily through direct appeals and
grant requests.
• Government Funding
The three government sources are Judicial
Council, Superior Court of San Diego
County, and County of San Diego Board
of Supervisors. Their combined funding
remained steady at $423,800 in 2009-10,
18% of our revenues.
• Special Events
Starry, Starry Night is Voices for Children’s
primary fundraiser. Its dinner and musical concert under the stars again broke
records in terms of attendance and funds
raised for both September 2009 and 2010
— with net results of more than $500,000
and $600,000 respectively. Another successful Voices for Children event was the
18th annual golf tournament at Fairbanks
Ranch Country Club in May 2010. Other
special events benefiting our children
include the Nikki St. Germain Memorial
Golf Tournament and Makua’s annual dinner dance. Makua’s Rockin’ Rumba in June
2010 netted $80,000 for our children. Net
of expenses, the combined special events
contributed 33% of revenues.

“Working with Voices
for Children has been
the epitome of any
volunteer work I have
ever engaged in…
Thank you for the
opportunity to work
with my beautiful case
family. Their love,
trials, and struggles have
opened my eyes and
heart in so many ways.
They will always be a
part of my life. I will
always cherish my time

Nearly 800 volunteers generously gave time to Voices for Children in 200910, helping transform the lives of children by donating more than 50,000
hours of their time. The dollar equivalent of these hours is
substantial! The Bureau of Labor Statistics values similar
services in California at $22.79, which means these
volunteer hours could be valued at approximately
$1,140,000.
Voices for Children’s volunteers are a special breed—
CASA give an extraordinary commitment of both time and emotions. Their diverse experiences and backgrounds are highlighted below (December 2010) and contribute to the success of our programs:
•
Employment Status: 45% of our volunteers work full-time, 20% are retired, and 17% are students or work part-time.
• Education: 86% of the volunteers have some level or college
educational or more and 26% of the volunteers hold graduate or doctorate degrees.
•
Age: Our volunteers vary in age, from early 20s to late 70s. Approximately 52% of them
are 51 or older, and have
substantial life experience to draw upon—and to share—in
their challenges as an advocate.

Voices for Children is also grateful to the many other individuals and organizations that have supported our work in
donations up to $1,000 and in-kind. Every donation is significant and, though too numerous to list, please know that your
thoughtful contribution makes a difference in the life of a child in foster care.
We have made every effort to ensure this list (which covers a period ending 12/31/2010) is complete and accurate. If you
have found an error or omission, please contact Eric Pitarresi, Database & Stewardship Coordinator at (858) 598-2243
or [email protected]
We would especially like to thank Milton Yi for his contribution of time and talent in the design of this report.
