I have been a CASA for almost four years. My first case involved two infant brothers, one of which was born while I was CASA for his big brother. The case lasted for two years, and was very difficult. My supervisor, Lonnette, was great. She was supportive and encouraging, even when the task before me seemed fraught with "land mines" and sure to fail. After all the hard work, dealing with attorneys, and time and gas spent on this case, it was worth it. I feel that I was able to help the parents learn better ways to take care of their children, and be a positive, consistent influence for the good of the children. My next case has been much more pleasant, and is going well. It involves three sweet, precious girls who were at risk. The parents have completed their required services and now use those new tools to be better parents. It is very rewarding to be a part of their success story. I highly recommend volunteering for CASA of Central Texas. They are the best!
