LATEST NEWS & EVENTS:

January Volunteer of the Month – Aaron Baldridge

Aaron BaldridgeThe Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program of the Second Judicial District has selected Aaron Baldridge as the Volunteer of the Month for January.  Baldridge has served as a CASA volunteer since February 2017. Volunteers serve as sworn officers of the court, and help to investigate and gather information on cases when children are removed from a home due to abuse or neglect.  The CASA information is provided to a judge who makes the decision whether appropriate steps have been taken to return the children to the home or to find them new, safe and permanent homes.

 

“My niece and nephew were adopted through foster care and I saw a need for people to help these children”, said Baldridge when asked why he became a CASA. He said he heard about CASA on a news story and called the next day to become an advocate. “I enjoy seeing all of the positive changes in the lives of children I work with and spending time with them is so much fun”, he added.

 

Aaron is currently assigned to two cases in Poinsett County.  Baldridge’s Advocate Coordinator, Michael Graham states “Aaron has evolved with the cases he has been assigned to. He has no problems working through hurdles that arise in his case work and failure is not an option for him.”

 

When asked why others should become a CASA Baldridge said “because you can make a difference”.  The work you do is time-flexible and can fit into any schedule and it is by far the most rewarding work I have ever done.”
