“I am so proud that I’ve been a CASA, a family mentor and now a Court Supervisor. This work returns so much joy and purpose to my life that is hard to say who it helps more. And then there are the adults I work with, the Court Supervisors and the office staff that supports us. They make me feel appreciated, when in fact, I am the one who’s appreciative of them.”
