We work with several external agencies to promote volunteer and mentoring opportunities. CASA of San Luis Obispo County advocates for the best interests of abused and neglected children within the court system. CASA recruits, trains, and supervises volunteers who advocate for this vulnerable population with the goal of ensuring that each and every child grows up in a safe, nurturing, and permanent home. Family Care Network believes that each member of the community brings a unique skill, talent, or resource that has the potential to impact the lives of the children and families served by the agency. Whether it is stuffing envelopes in the office, serving food at an event, or mentoring or tutoring a youth, individuals from our community have added tremendously to the agency’s overall success. Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Luis Obispo is a donor and volunteer supported organization to help vulnerable children of single, low-income and/or incarcerated parents. Funding provides for targeted and careful volunteer recruiting, screening and matching, as well as ongoing support for volunteers, children, and families, ensuring child safety and sustaining successful long term relationships with positive outcomes.

Sponsor an Activity
The Youth Enrichment Program is designed to provide opportunities for foster youth to participate in fun, educational, and engaging, extra-curricular activities. These activities depend on the businesses involved and could vary from sporting events to arts & crafts, a day at the zoo, live theater or cooking classes. Our goal is to coordinate these activities once a month.
We are also coordinating individual activities for youth, in partnership with our community. These could be on-going activities like music lessons or self defense classes or a one-time activity like a sporting event.
