ADVOCATE OF THE MONTH - MAY
Kathy was sworn in as an Advocate in February of this year. She knew from the extensive pre-service training that she had the passion to be a great child advocate; her only concern was overcoming nervousness in court. Diving right into her case, Kathy met with the biological parents as well as the relative placement for the children. Next, Kathy familiarized herself with the daycare and staff. On a hunch, Kathy monitored the daycare to see who was picking the kids up and where they were taken. She immediately reported to her supervisor that an unknown person was transporting the children to an unauthorized location. The supervisor then met with her the next day to witness and photograph the same scenario. CPS was informed, as was the children's attorney, and the matter was then taken to the judge. Within 3 weeks of being assigned to the case, Kathy stood confidently in court and reported her findings as well as her recommendations for the children. Her diligence and clarity of facts convinced the judge to agree with her, without any nervousness at all.
Thank you, Kathy, for being a strong voice for our CASA kiddos!
