Linda Williams – February 2021
Continuing to make children a priority in her life after teaching for 34 years is Linda Williams’ mission and purpose in life.
“It has been my life’s passion to make a difference in the lives of children. As a retired educator, being a CASA volunteer has allowed me to continue working on behalf of children of all ages and backgrounds. CASA volunteers advocate for and ensure a child’s right to a safe, nurturing and happy life. My hope is that through my work as a CASA volunteer, I cannot only speak for a child whose voice often goes unheard but also help them to believe in themselves and their unique gifts and talents and provide support as they experience a very difficult time in life. Working with children is what I have been called to do, and I am so honored to have the opportunity to be doing so as a CASA volunteer.”
Linda swore in during October 2016 was instrumental is seeing six children being reunified with a biological parent. She is currently advocating for six children and is hoping to change their life story.
