Becky is dedicated to speaking up and standing up for those who are most vulnerable in our world. She knows that every child deserves a home where they feel loved and safe. When she realized the powerful impact the voice of a CASA volunteer can have on the life of a child experiencing abuse or neglect, she knew she wanted to be a part of this work. In her words: “I am inspired by the commitment of our volunteers and donors who choose to give of themselves to ensure the children of McHenry County are given that voice and the gift of a loving home.”
