“I love being a CASA! I have been with my kiddo for about a year, and it has been and continues to be extremely rewarding. I have had the privilege of building a special relationship with a very sensitive, hilarious, beautiful, and resilient young woman. We spend time together doing a little bit of everything; sports, crafts, doctor visits, tutoring, foster family bonding activities, court hearing, trials, and trying restaurants all over town. I genuinely care about her and feel her love and appreciation for my consistency and advocacy. It has been an incredible opportunity to watch her grow into herself and bloom beyond all the challenges against her. Working with her team of case professionals to build a foundation of support and communication for my CASA child has been educational. Knowing that my child considers me to be a trusting person in her life now when a year ago she was so shielded and distant is fabulous. Being her CASA brings me such enjoyment and, whether I am influencing her laughter or being receptive to her tears, I can't say enough about how amazing our time together is. I honestly wish I had known about CASA years ago, I'd be going on my 20th anniversary.”
Christina, CASA since 2021
