As president of a private foundation in Houston for 8 years, I was able to evaluate grant requests from a large number of not-for profit organizations. Our foundation provided grants to organizations who made a significant difference in the lives of abused or neglected children, the homeless, victims of domestic violence, and many other programs designed to assist those who are less fortunate or afflicted.

When I retired from the foundation, I wanted to continue to assist this population in some manner. After careful thought concerning the many worthy organizations I had worked with, my choice was to become a CASA volunteer. Now, 6 years later, I find myself as President of the Texas CASA board. I sleep better at night knowing that in some small way I have something to do with serving over 22,000 abused or neglected children with a CASA volunteer. I hope some day that CASA will have the resources to serve the other 25,000 abused or neglected children who do not have a CASA.
