I have been a proud Sonoma County CASA since 2005. I have had two cases that have been very different. I feel the interaction I have had with both children has been essential to them in a positive way. My training and introduction to the CASA organization was nothing short of amazing. The speakers and the people from the Courts and various departments as well as the CASA Staff and Director, give 110% to this program, and that is what it makes it work. The intention of what is best for these children is what is most important. My role as a CASA has had a great impact on me in many ways. It has opened my eyes to the challenges that children face, that parents face and the ways in which they affect each other for possibly years to come. I have learned that the consistency and dedication of just one person can make a difference in a child's life that can sometimes be the saving grace. Just ONE person that cares and is there for them, shows up and listens to them, and responds to them, this is what makes a happy child. Truly my experiences have made me realize all children need that special someone that looks out for them and only them. I am proud to say that I have taken on this role and have made a difference.
