Dave has been a Volunteer Advocate since 2009. He has been working on one case for the last 6 years. This case involves an 11 year old with learning disabilities that has lived in group homes most of his life. Because this child functions on the level of a much younger child, Dave truly has become his voice. Due to Medicaid payment changes, the child was taken off a medication that proved vital to his progress. Dave fought diligently through red tape to get this child back on his medication, and continues to be involved in monitoring its effectiveness and the positive impact on the child's educational development. Dave also serves on the Board of Directors for CASA, and his dedication to our children and mission are exemplary.
