Casa Youth Shelter was delighted to welcome Senator Tom Umberg and part of his team for a recent visit. Senator Umberg presented Executive Director Amy Lakin and CYS Board President Greg Magnuson with a certificate honoring Casa Youth Shelter as a 2021 California Nonprofit of the Year. The Senator spent his time getting to know more about Casa Youth Shelter, talked with staff, asked our Youth Leadership members (who were at the House volunteering) lots of questions, toured the House, and was genuinely happy to spend part of his day with us.
“I am proud to award such an incredible organization with this annual honor. Casa Youth Shelter has helped countless children and families overcome difficult times by providing them with comfort, safety, and a continuously supportive community. The 34th Senate District is lucky to have Casa as a valuable resource,” said Senator Umberg.
