More biographical information:
Colleen A. McGauley, Executive Director CASA of Kern County, has been with CASA since their inception in 1994. Colleen was the first CASA volunteer in juvenile court in Kern County, and has continued to serve as a CASA volunteer throughout her tenure. She stepped up to become the Director in October 2001 and under her leadership CASA has doubled both the number of active volunteers, and the number of abused children served annually. The CASA program of Kern County is a well respected nonprofit in Kern County, and throughout California. Ms McGauley has led several systemic advocacy projects in the juvenile dependency system over her tenure. Most notably, the Urgent Action Team which triages the needs of emancipating foster youth and wards, along with the Educational Stability Task Force for Foster Children. As an active Rotarian, and passionate about strengthening nonprofits, Colleen co-leads the NonProfit Leadership Forum of the Bakersfield Rotary Club.
Colleen received her bachelor's degree from Loyola Marymount in Los Angeles, and completed her MPA from CSUB in June 2008. Colleen was honored to receive the Outstanding Alumnus award from the School of Business and Public Administration at CSUB for 2010-2011.
Colleen was raised in Southern California but came to Bakersfield after living in rural Northwest Alaska, above the Arctic Circle for four years. Her Alaska experiences involved working with troubled Inupiak youth.

It's such a concern that advocates like Colleen McGauley say a local study is in order. "We have kids on these medications, just at a glance, that are not getting mental health treatment."

McGauley is the Executive Director of Kern CASA, a group of volunteers who serve as advocates for foster kids in court. She says 70 of the foster kids in her program are on some form of behavioral drug, roughly 40%.
"Here I am just an advocate for children, but making me behave when I have lost everything that's important to me is not going to fix that I've lost everything important to me," said McGauley.
Dignity Health just awarded CASA a $40,000 grant to take a closer look at all 70 case files.
"We've put this grant together to try to affect systemic change if it's needed. I believe that we do have some children that are quickly moved to medication and a diagnosis of ADHD when it may not be the diagnosis that they need," said McGauley.
But, Child Protective Service's Antanette Jones points out the CASA program takes in foster kids who are high-need. "That wouldn't be surprising to me because CASAs would not be assigned to kids who are not having problems," she said.
