Advocate Spotlight: LaKendra
Being a CASA volunteer has been a goal of mine for years; I first learned about CASA while volunteering as a legal intern with RCC in Galveston. When the time and opportunity opened for me to apply as a CASA volunteer, I signed up right away!
CASA has been a very rewarding experience for me- what I appreciate most about volunteering with this organization is the impact that I can make; CASA is a long term commitment/investment into the community, one family at a time. This unique model of volunteering in CASA allows us to form deeper connections with families that otherwise wouldn’t happen with other volunteer opportunities.
Outside of being a CASA volunteer I work as a dance teacher and performer, and I support mothers and families throughout their journeys through pregnancy and birth.
