CASA of Kern County has received such immense support from the energy companies in our community, that we don’t consider them funders, we consider them partners. Each energy partner has provided leadership, strategic planning assistance, vital funding, committee support, and volunteer Advocacy to the vulnerable foster children in acute need that we serve. These abused and abandoned children do not vote, do not drive vehicles, and do not make energy choices for their families, and yet the support grows annually. The Oil and Energy companies in Kern County are comprised of caring people who want to ensure safety and sustainability for the most fragile in our community. It is easy to support their cause.
