“On our first visit, I told the kids that I’m here to let the judge know how they are doing and if they need anything. I said, ‘I’ll be with you the entire time’. I knew that was true the moment I laid eyes on them. They need me. I can’t leave them.”
"Being involved in the CASA organization has made me feel empowered to make a direct difference in the life of a child within my own community."
"Advocating for a child from a distance, through Zoom calls and quarantines, can bring disconnect and frustration, but knowing how much harder it is on the kids brings a certain drive and fervor to us all."
