News & Events

With changing seasons comes more than just pumpkin-spice-flavored everything and crunchy fall leaves. The new season also brings forward new opportunities to do good out in the world.

What are you waiting for? The benefits of mentoring will not only give back to your mentee, but also to your community, and even to you.

While it’s easy to get wrapped up in checking in on others, it’s important for your mental health to practice self-care.

    "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!"
