“To give a child a CASA volunteer is to give them a voice. To give them a voice is to give them hope, and to give them hope is to give them the world.”

A great story about a CASA volunteer in AZ who “retires” from service at the age of 100 - from National CASA / GAL Association for Children Network News, June 16, 2021Anne Dessert is no ordinary CASA volunteer. This past March, Anne celebrated her 100th birthday! Anne first started her work as a CASA volunteer in 2004 at the young age of 83. She first became aware of CASA when a gentleman stopped by her house to check out a car she was trying to sell. They struck up a conversation and he mentioned she would make a great CASA volunteer. That man was Judge Gilberto V. Figueroa from Pinal County Superior Court in Florence, AZ. Over her 17 years of service, Anne has served over 13 children and their families. She has also mentored new volunteers, assisted in screening cases and attended dozens of CASA events, including taking on the role of Mrs. Claus at the annual Christmas party for children in foster care. When asked if she has any advice on leadership and getting involved in the community, Anne said: “My advice is to get involved. If you see something that needs to be done, then get started and complete the task. As you go, bring others along to help. The sidelines may seem safe and stress free, but they are not as interesting, exciting, satisfying and fun as getting to work and getting things done.” CASA of Pinal County and the children Anne has served will be forever changed by her dedication, experience and commitment to making an impact. As Anne “retires” from serving as a CASA volunteer, we know she will continue to advocate for the children and families in her community.#casa #volunteer #100yearsyoung #childadvocacy #inspiration #fosterchildren ...

Governor Brian Kemp has appointed Jerry Bruce as the Office of Child Advocate (OCA) Director to replace outgoing Director Rachel Davidson. In previous roles, Director Bruce has relentlessly pushed for system improvements, challenging all players in the system to appreciate and excel in their respective roles.A regular presenter at statewide and regional conferences and trainings, Director Bruce champions the unique and distinct GAL role in dependency proceedings and most recently co-authored the GAL Best Interest Advocacy Guide with Georgia CASA Advocacy Director Angela Tyner. We look forward to continuing our long-standing partnership with Director Bruce and OCA in its statutory role within the child welfare system. gov.georgia.gov/press-releases/2021-06-15/governor-kemp-appoints-new-child-advocate-0 ...
