April Volunteers of the Month

April VolunteersMary and Miranda are a mother-daughter teams that went thru training together and are working the same case.  They heard about CASA from another advocate and were determined to help children in need. “I have a passion to help children, and it feels like if you can change direction at an early age they would be successful as an adult,” Sellars stated. When asked hat surprised here about CASA work Erickson responded “I was surprised at how this work has softened my heart towards the parents going through this.  I knew I would love the kids and be cheering them on, but I’ve always been a little harsh on adults. I realized without knowing their background story, it is not fair to judge them just by what you see on the surface. “

 

Their first case involved 7 siblings who all experienced some type of trauma. “It was a very complicated case, but rewarding and the kids were so sweet,” stated Sellars. They have since worked on two additional cases and continue to be a strong voice for children in foster care.

 

When asked what the best thing about being a CASA is Erickson said “My favorite thing is how much I’ve learned. It changes your heart and makes you look at life and people in a different light. It is one of the most rewarding things I’ve done.  They both encouraged others to look into becoming a CASA advocate and being someone a child in foster care can trust to help them out.
