The Grannis Family
"We have always dreamed of being parents, but for many years we were not able to be. On January 22nd, 2014 that dream came true. We were blessed with the opportunity to become foster parents to a beautiful, brown-eyed baby girl. Our journey lasted for 2 ½ years and with the help of CASA, she is ours forever. CASA stood by our little girl the whole way through and helped decide what the best was for her future. They advocated for her. They attended visits and court hearings and testified as what would be best for her. We are thankful that there are volunteers who care and give so much time to the foster children in our community. We are forever blessed."

“We support CASA because of the positive effect it has on the youth of our area. CASA is without a doubt a very valuable assest to the community and we encourage everyone to support this worthy cause.”
"I knew the words 'Social Worker' before the word 'Mom.' I know the importance of a child needing and having an advocate to speak for them."
Karin & Perry Poe
"Approximately seven years ago, a ten year old grandson entered our home to live with us. A CASA volunteer was assigned to work with him. We cannot say enough positive things about our CASA worker. She visited him on a regular basis and even attended some of his sporting events. She had a great impact on his life at the time of transitioning into our home. Having a CASA worker in court with us was especially helpful, putting us more at ease. She explained what was most likely to happen and was always available to help us through the process of getting permanent custody of him. So, not only was the CASA worker representing him, she was also there to help us.
Thanks so much to her for all she has done. She was definitely the BEST!
Perry and I both feel that having a CASA volunteer was the most wonderful thing that could have ever happened in our situation, and we highly recommend the use of CASA to anyone needing the help."
Ms. Barbara Ware
"I became a CASA Volunteer to be connected to children and to hopefully make a difference in their lives. I have learned so much from the three cases I have closed, and the two I am presently assigned. After 5 years, I can say that my CASA experience has brought joy and rewards to my life that I thought I would never have again retiring from teaching."
Mrs. Tammara Stricklett
"Becoming a CASA Volunteer has given me an opportunity to give back as a measure of gratitude for the many blessings in my own life. There is no better way than to give a voice to a child in need."
