“I will never forget the faces of my kiddos when I first met them. They were sitting close together, scared and confused, and they could barely talk. After over 2 years, all I see now is their smiling faces and they cannot stop talking to me. It is rewarding to see their transformation! I’m planning to continue working as a CASA as long as I can.”
– Yoko Gely
Amy’s child, in her words, ”despite all of the things he has been through, he is the most resilient, happy kid, and I just love being his CASA!”
– Amy Woods
“I appreciate that each CASA only has one case at a time. I admire and respect the case workers and juvenile officers who have so many cases and children; I sure don’t know how they keep up!”
– JulieAnne Mattson
“I became a CASA volunteer because oftentimes children are voiceless and society ignores children if they don’t excel in sports or spelling competitions. Humanness requires caring for our most vulnerable populations – young, old, disabled. Kindness costs nothing, but enriches so much!”
