CASA Program Screens Foster Care Documentary

CASA of Orange County, Santa Ana, CA

The feature documentary From Place to Place follows two youth who age out of foster care and then set out to change the system that raised them. CASA of Orange County recently hosted a screening of the film for its staff and volunteers. The film’s producer, Matt Anderson, was on hand for the screening and the panel discussion that followed, which also included foster youth from the region. “The film is a great tool to motivate, inspire and energize advocates as well as the community at large,” said Training Director Mandy Schwartz. Upcoming screenings are planned in coordination with several CASA programs across the country. For more information about the documentary, visit fromplacetoplacemovie.com.
