KBLX Cares: A Home Within and SF CASA

Sterling James welcomes partnering Executive Directors, David Simpson and Renée Espinoza, of A Home Within and SF CASA into the KBLX studios to talk about their work in advocating for foster and at-risk youth.

A Home Within is a national organization which recruits, trains, and supports licensed therapists who provide pro-bono therapy to foster youth. Under its model, therapists meet weekly with a foster youth client for “as long as it takes” – typically for more than three years. They also provide consultation group support and free continuing education programs for its volunteer therapists. SFCASA empowers everyday citizens to become officers of the court to serve as advocates and mentors to more than 350 abused and neglected children in foster care. Their mission is to transform the lives of abused and neglected foster youth by providing one consistent, caring volunteer advocate, trained to address each child’s needs in the court and the community.
