I have proudly served as a CASA for the past three years. During this time I have had the privilege to support three different girls in the foster care system. These are children with amazing stories of resilience but for whom childhood has been accompanied with much pain and loss. We at CASA aim to be part of a safety net which provides another responsible, caring adult in the lives of children. More than anything, we "show up". We provide nurturing, expanding experiences and broad shoulders to help lessen the load.We set an example as a consistent, responsible adult. We advocate at every turn on behalf of our youth. We listen. While being a CASA can present many challenges, the rewards that can at times be small and slow in coming, are HUGE. I know from experience that what we do, the support we provide, is changing lives. CASA Jill E
