Volunteer Testimonials

CASA DeKalb County Advocate Christel Springmire shares her most rewarding experience as a CASA advocate:  

Advocate in School Resized 35%“We are very family oriented and one of our greatest joys is seeing happy children. Children that become assigned to CASA cases are often being robbed of the joys of their childhood. It is through the process of working with the children, their parents, and often foster parents, that we are able to determine the best environment possible for the children that are in very difficult positions through no fault of their own. The judges that we work with in DeKalb County listen to what we determine and take this into consideration when they make their final decisions. The rewards of being a CASA are the smiles on the faces of the children and often hugs with a thank-you – that’s what its all about.” –CASA advocate


“I volunteer because all children are precious and deserve to be treated as such. They are a gift to humanity.” –CASA Advocate


Light Their Futures Small


“I’m a CASA advocate because a little bit of my time can change the life of an abused or neglected child. If everyone can give a little bit of time a huge difference can be made in the lives of local children. Some stories will break your heart or make you angry, but all of the stories are worth hearing and we need more people to listen.”–CASA Advocate
