June 09, 2015 (San Marcos, CA) – Following two events hosted during National Child Abuse Prevention Month in April, Casa de Amparo celebrated its foster youth during National Foster Care Awareness Month on May 27, 2015 at Casa Kids Campus in San Marcos, CA. The event included a barbeque, karaoke, photo booth, dancing, and a motivational speech from a former foster youth.
In honor of the youth, staff and volunteers wore blue in solidarity to serve as a reminder of the cause. The event allowed the kids and community to come together to experience a day of fun. Many of these kids come from traumatic backgrounds and have missed out on childhood experiences. Casa de Amparo provides children the chance to create memories and experience life without the fear of abuse or neglect.
