This month we are recognizing Anita Hayes-Birt for our monthly spotlight. Anita was sworn in as a CASA volunteer May of 2018. She was immediately assigned to a case that she has been advocating for the same child since. Anita shared why she became a CASA volunteer:

“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!”

Anita has adapted to the changing circumstances of the pandemic all while staying in constant contact with her child. Anita ensures that her child has a voice during team meetings and in the courtroom. We want to give a tremendous thanks to Antia for her dedication to CASA and the child she serves!
