posted by Olivia James * Missing mentally ill man, a note from his concerned family members: Our mentally ill, adult son, Bradlee, has been missing since Sunday, October 11th. He is very sick and we need to find him as soon as possible to get him the care he needs. Bradlee is deeply religious and it is likely he will attend church while he is on the streets. Please help us and email or call (301-320-4221) if you see Bradlee. Bradlee is a white, redheaded, six-foot, 35-year-old man. He was last seen at his apartment in Chevy Chase wearing green pants, white sneakers and a fleece jacket. (Missing Poster Attached) God Bless, Bradlee’s Parents and Sister (BJ + Frank + Caroline)

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 (www.casadc.org)! Many blessings, Sally
