Kirk has lived in Sycamore for 30 years and joined his wife as a CASA Advocate when he retired 6 months ago, serving 1 child since being sworn in. Kirk really enjoys his monthly visits with his CASA child and getting to know him better.

Kirk says, “Being an advocate provides an opportunity to give back to the community as well as learn about our legal system. Seeing a case from the inside gives you a perspective on just how challenging it is for kids to manage abuse or neglect in their lives. CASA makes a huge difference in kids’ lives and being part of the effort is rewarding. CASA volunteers come from all walks of life and all training and support necessary is provided by the outstanding CASA professional staff. CASA needs more advocates, so consider volunteering.”

Fun fact – Kirk is an avid sailor and very much enjoys sailing his small sailboat at our summer cabin in Canada.
