"I had a very demanding job and I seemed to be working all the time. Even when I was home, I was thinking about the work. I was frustrated and missed the volunteer work I had done in the past. I was also feeling guilty that there was so much need in our community and I wasn’t helping out."
"I saw a picture in the paper of advocates who had just been sworn in and thought I should learn more about CASA. I was blessed to grow up in a loving and nurturing family and wanted to do what I could do for children who weren’t as lucky as I was."
