What brought you to apply to become a CASA?
Since I retired from being a Nursing Home Administrator, I got involved with a few different volunteer endeavors such as Hospice, Habitat, Indiana Legal Services, and Thriving Connections, etc. My parents always were helping people who needed assistance in one way or another.
When I taught elementary in the late 70’s, I reported some incidents to administration about suspected abuse and neglect and was told to butt out. That has bothered me to this day. I had no idea that by signing up to be a CASA the enormity of children who didn’t have anyone to advocate for them. I’m pretty good at figuring out where to look and then secure things for the kiddos that DCS was unable to do.
