At her first hearing in foster care, Lauren met the woman who would help turn her life around: Stephanie, her CASA volunteer.  Stephanie stood up for Lauren in the courtroom.  She gave voice to Lauren’s concerns and needs and fought for a better future.  Today, Lauren is a university student.  She wants to dedicate her life to helping others.   With your financial support, we can recruit, train, and support enough volunteers to care for every child in need in our county. A gift of

Thinking of all of you. How are your families? Please let me know if you need anything. I am the community health nurse. Your health care providers want to do well child visits. They may want to do it by telehealth. Some clinics are doing drive through vaccinations. I can do developmental screening by phone which gives you ideas for activities. If you need books, I can try to get them delivered. Michele RN. 509-306-1740
