Congratulations to Samantha Armes, who is CASA’s Volunteer of the Month for December 2016. Armes is also a full-time mom with two children at home, one three year-old and one only six months old. She says that in addition to caring for her own family, she looked for something interesting to do that would allow her to get involved with volunteer work. She says she read about CASA and, as she learned more, she knew that was a volunteer job she could support. “I took my first case on the day I was sworn in,” Armes says. “That was over a year ago, and that case has just ended with the adoption by the foster parent of the little boy who is now 2-years old.”
“I couldn’t be happier or more excited about the adoption,” says Armes. “I just wish we could have moved the process along faster for both the child and for the new parent. I think that was the most frustrating thing about the case,” she added.
Every CASA volunteer has a Volunteer Coordinator that helps with all aspects of the work. Jerri Willis is Armes’ Volunteer Coordinator and says that it was Armes’ completion of the final work for the adoption package that allowed the adoption to move forward. “The attorney ad litem on the case,” Willis says, “acknowledged that if it weren’t for Samantha’s help the long-delayed adoption would not have happened even last week. She is a great asset and always has met deadlines, even after having a new baby at home,” Willis added. “She also took the time to attend this year’s State CASA Conference event with us.”
