CASA Volunteer Su Randall:
I became a CASA Volunteer after I retired as a school guidance counselor. In my work, I saw how foster children didn’t always have the same strong support system that children from other families enjoyed.
I wondered if I could make a difference.
After I became a CASA Volunteer, I was amazed at the difficulties that over-worked JFS workers face in trying to understand and meet the needs of their clients. As a CASA Volunteer, I have been able to spend time to delve more deeply into my cases. That time has afforded me the ability to understand both the short-term and long-term needs of the children with whom I work.
I see that when we go to court on behalf of a child and the ProKids recommendations are embraced by the magistrate.
At ProKids, we really believe that every kid deserves a chance. When they get a chance, they have the opportunity to make the choices which will lead them to successful lives.
