Marissa Reed – July 2018 Featured Volunteer
- How long have you been a CASA?
I have been a CASA for a little over eight years.
- What brought you to apply to become a CASA?
I really wanted to volunteer with kids and do something meaningful in my community. I had considered becoming a foster parent, but ultimately decided that wouldn’t be the best fit for me at the time. Then I saw a CASA billboard and after researching the organization, I knew this would be a good fit for me.
- Besides being a CASA advocate, what do you like to do in your spare time?
Most of my free time is spent attending my son’s basketball and baseball games. I enjoy outdoor activities, reading, and spending time with family at my parents’ lake house.
- What do you love the most about being a CASA?
What I love most about being a CASA is connecting with the kids I serve. These children deserve to have someone in their lives that are solely focused on them, if even only for a short while. Several of my cases have spanned multiple years, and it has been such an honor watching the kids’ development – physically, mentally, and emotionally.
