CASA Volunteer Identifies Resources and Provides Support for Family
Due to parental methamphetamine abuse, three children – all ages three and under – were placed in the care of their grandmother. CASA volunteer Carolyn was assigned to the case and continuously provided support to both the grandmother and the parents. She identified resources necessary to meet the children’s needs and ensured the parents received the necessary supports to work towards being reunified with their children. Eighteen months later, the children were successfully returned to their parents’ care. At the last court hearing, the grandmother and parents shared that Carolyn had developed an amazing relationship with the children and provided countless hours of support to the whole family. The father specifically stated how grateful he was to have Carolyn’s support.
