posted by Stephanie Dock * Age-Friendly DC   I am connected through work to a DC government effort to make DC more senior-friendly, called Age-Friendly DC. They are looking to get people to take a survey on how livable DC is for seniors. I know we have an engaged older community in our church, so was wondering if there would be a good way to get word out about the survey. The survey information is available here and at all DC public libraries:

posted by Sally Stoecker * Court Appointed Special Advocates  — CASA—DC (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is a really important and worthy organization that always needs support. This is where I volunteered (2007-2011) and also worked part time as staff in 2009.   Volunteers are trained to represent foster care children in family court and to mentor and assist them outside of court–to make sure they are cared for properly…education, health, hygiene, etc.  I often lift up Lyashaw in prayer—I represented her until she aged out of the system at 21. We are still in touch and that has been a very special relationship.   I highly recommend CASA (!  Many blessings, Sally
