Because every child
MEET OUR VOLUNTEERS
Volunteering for CASA has been a full circle experience for Kristian. It has allowed her to help others work through similar experiences she has had. In addition, as an advocate, Kristian values above all else the chance to serve as the voice for a child or youth in court. The decisions made in court will impact the rest of a child’s life, and creating positive outcomes for a child or youth is such a rewarding experience.
Allyne considers her contact with CASA’s community of volunteers and staff the most positive aspect of her engagement. She especially likes gathering around and learning from one another.
Her time with CASA has taught her that everyone has a unique story, and she feels that CASA has increased her own sense of empathy.
Allyne’s most memorable experience was the successful adoption of a child, in which he and his foster family were able to move to Puerto Rico after a four year legal process. The adoptive family was very excited to be able to provide him with a different kind of life than he would have had in New York.
