Review for CASA of Sonoma County (Court Appointed Special Advocates of Sonoma County), Kenwood, CA, USA
I have been involved in other volunteer programs in the past but I have to say serving as a CASA is the most rewarding experience I have ever had. There is no measurement you can place on being the voice, a mentor, a support sytem and consisent presence in the life of a child. I currently have 3 CASA children each of them having different backgrounds and stories. Although things may not always move along as quickly as I would like, I see endless possibilities for a successful future for them. To see the sparkle in their eyes when they see me and/or to be the ears they need when they have tears in their eyes makes it all worth it. Getting involved can seem scary and overwhelming at first. To be completely honest, the fear of making a mistake was in the back of my mind but then I realized if these brave children can face their fears everyday then so could I. I am so glad I did not let the fear hold me back!!!
