ADVOCATE OF THE MONTH - NOVEMBER
Now in her third year as a Volunteer Advocate, Sheila is experienced and committed to her CASA kids. Her current case involves numerous parties - biological and foster parents, therapists, teachers, CPS - and Sheila logged over 230 contacts over a 3 month period. Because she had been present for every visitation between child and biological parent, Sheila was able to make a valid, informed recommendation in court. Sheila is one of those rare souls that wants to see everyone succeed, and she makes every effort to guide biological parents as well as the children. While the biological parents are working to improve themselves, Sheila also provides a strong support system for the foster parents. She genuinely understands that the more positive influences a child can have, the better their chance for healing. Aside from the amazing advocacy Sheila provides on her case, she is also timely and accurate in documentation and court reports. Her Supervisor, Jarah, feels blessed to work alongside her.
Thank you, Sheila, and congratulations!
