My husband and I have been co-CASAs for six children in three different cases. It is extraordinarily rewarding to be able to help children, and sometimes their families, during a terrible time in their lives. The work is challenging and helps you grow personally and professionally. The staff is exceptional in their support and appreciation for volunteers.
I have been a CASA volunteer for two and a half years. I love the fact that CASA volunteers are the "eyes and ears" of the Judges who preside over these children's lives. I feel that CASA does an incredible job of helping foster children with the limited resources they have.
CASA of Williamson County is a great place to be. Everyday volunteers are being asked to work very hard in the child welfare system where they are giving it all they have to speak up in the best interest of a child. This means making endless phones calls, visitng who may be placed far from home, attending school meetings, talking to parents, teachers and other family members to make sure that the child does not fall through the cracks within the system.
