News & Events

In 2020, you might be wondering if being happy is something you could admit to—but even during challenging times, there are ways to boost your mood and try to celebrate the good things in life.

When it comes to living an altruistic life that can help make a difference for others, one of the most valuable things you can give your community is the gift of volunteering.

On average, a new habit takes approximately 30 days to develop, so don’t get discouraged if you struggle at first. Remain positive and focused on the goal.

    "I wanted to make a positive impact on a child's life. I wanted to be the person I needed when I was a child." James says when he visits the children he serves, they are always excited to see him! They run to him and give him lots of hugs. For anyone considering to be a CASA, James would tell you "move from 'consideration' and take the next step! Check out CASA's Facebook page, speak with a current CASA, ask questions: see if volunteering with CASA is right for you!"
