I Am For The Child
Circumstances in life prevented me from being able to become a foster parent to give back to the system that saved my life. When I learned about the work CASA does I knew it was the perfect way to give back. Since I started over two years ago I’ve had the privilege of being the voice for six children so far. It’s the greatest feeling in the world to get to know your child, make a recommendation to the court to make life better for them, and then to hear the judge order it so. BAM! You just made life better for your child. You are their Superhero in real life.

 I Am for the Child


“I was blessed to have parents who were healthy, loving, disciplined and worked to give me what I needed; that included an education. Many children in our community are not so blessed and they need someone who thinks that they are important and worthy of love and respect. As a CASA I can provide a relationship that is child centered and can assist others in providing a healthy, disciplined, loving environment for his/her growth. I think that is very important.”
