A CASA Volunteers Story
A chance encounter with a little boy and his CASA volunteer brought new direction in the course of Christina Harrison's life.
While working as a clinician, Christina met Tommy, an 11-year-old boy who had spent half of his life in foster care. Christina, a mental health care worker, had been asked to meet with him weekly for six months and report on his health to his CASA volunteer, who would, in turn, inform the judge assigned to his case.
The more time Christina spent with the boy and his CASA volunteer, the more she learned. This was her first interaction with a CASA program, and she was struck by the life-altering work of the child's volunteer advocate. The CASA volunteer's support enabled the boy to share his story of abuse with Christina, who in turn was able to treat him and make recommendations to the court that assured his safety.
"The efforts of that volunteer ensured that little boy was not returned to a home where he was being beaten, overmedicated and neglected in other ways a child should not have to deal with- not at any age," says Christina.
Christina was so emotionally moved by the contributions of the CASA volunteer that she decided to become a volunteer herself.
