The longtime leader of CASA of Kern County, Colleen McGauley, is stepping down as executive director.
McGauley, who has led the non-profit for 17 years, is moving to a new position as senior advisor to the board of directors and the organization.
McGauley says there is little that she has enjoyed more in life than leading the CASA mission.
CASA, or Court-appointed Special Advocates, provides volunteers who advocate for foster children in court and are often the only constant adult presence in a foster child’s life.
