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. Also, if you are thinking of volunteering somewhere in 2014, I highly recommend CASA (www.casadc.org)! Many blessings, Sally
