​​My journey to becoming a CASA Volunteer began when I started mentoring children with incarcerated parents 16 years ago. I saw the devastating consequences of losing a parent to incarceration. My eyes were opened to a completely different world that I had never experienced. The more I learned about the complex issues of families in crisis, the more I felt compelled to volunteer. After an acquaintance told me about the CASA program, I immediately signed up. The most rewarding element of being a CASA volunteer is building a positive relationship with a youth that has had so many negative experiences.
