What CASA Advocates are Saying

“The legislators I met were interested and focused on the problem of serving foster children in Oregon. I found them to be extremely generous with their time; several meeting lasted more than an hour. They also indicated anticipation of our visit to the State Capitol. They all seemed to understand that this budget session would be a very difficult one, and they were looking for the most efficient way to budget state money.” — Julia Keizur

“It was heartwarming to realize how much state legislators know about CASA–and how highly they respect the program.” — Barb Newman

“Although I was a little apprehensive about meeting with legislators at the beginning of the process, I quickly came to realize that these people are almost as interested in speaking with us as we are with them. Each of my encounters with legislators was pleasant, informative and fulfilling. I ended up truly enjoying the experience and looking forward to further involvement.” — Helen Lucas
