Community Spirit Award

Lisa Sobrato Sonsini established the Sobrato Family Foundation in 1996 as a vehicle for multiple generations of the Sobrato family to unify their philanthropic giving. She strongly advocates for the rights of disadvantaged youth in the educational and foster care systems. One of her most notable contributions is her longstanding support for Child Advocates, which began nearly 30 years ago as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Volunteer and later served on the agency’s board.

Keynote Speaker

Child Advocates is honored to have Tracy Warman-Gries as our keynote speaker at our Black, White & Pink Ball. Tracy saw firsthand the impact caring adults have on foster youth through her parents serving as foster parents for 21 children. Her experience growing up ultimately led her to serve foster youth with Child Advocates of Silicon Valley as a CASA Volunteer.

About Child Advocates
of Silicon Valley

At any given time, there are approximately 500 children in the Santa Clara County Dependency Court System, more commonly referred to as “foster care.” Child Advocates of Silicon Valley serves these children by providing trained, dedicated volunteers to act as advocates at dependency court hearings and serve as consistent role models and mentors.

Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Volunteers offer a constant adult presence, and their work helps reduce the impact of trauma caused by experiences of abuse, neglect, and abandonment. They work with legal professionals, educators, service providers, and family members to ensure every foster youth’s voice is heard. Child Advocates recruits, trains, and supports Silicon Valley CASA Volunteers, ensuring every foster child has the nurturing support and resources they need to thrive.
