My name is Mary Anderson and I am a CASA volunteer. I was appointed by the Juvenile Court Judges to advocate for abused and neglected children to make sure they don’t get lost in the system, to ensure that their needs are being met and their voices are being heard. A child in the foster care system has many people in their lives, I am able to be the one consistent person in their life, constantly fighting for and protecting their fundamental right to be treated with respect and letting them know that they matter and their feelings are important. I really feel like I am making a difference in the lives of the children I work with and their families as I get to know everyone in the child’s life and make recommendations to the Court about the best interest of the child. The Executive Director is fantastic and the Supervisors are so supportive and helpful. I have never felt the satisfaction of volunteering as much as I do since I became a volunteer with CASA of Prince George’s County. CASA of Prince George’s County, MD is one of the best organizations to be a part of!
