My Community Involvement
- Board Member - Oregon Judicial Department's Citizen Review Board of Yamhill County Apr 2011 Present The CRB is a diverse group of local volunteers who review cases of children in foster care and bring a community perspective to the foster care system. The Citizen Review Board (CRB) is a program of the Oregon Judicial Department, independent of the agencies we review, and is one of the largest volunteer citizen engagement programs in Oregon.
- Board Member/Treasurer - Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Yamhill County Jun 2015 Present A CASA volunteer is the unbiased and fierce protector of a child who has been abused or neglected and is going through the trauma of the court system. CASA volunteers are granted tremendous authority by the court and are able to do what it takes to see that a child is not ignored, their best interests are served, and that the judge is able to understand the true facts of a childs condition in an over-burdened child welfare system. CASAs are in a unique position to work in the system without being of the system. Throughout the process, CASAs have permission to visit the children regularly, talk to a childs parents, teachers, caseworkers, doctors and therapists in order to hear all perspectives and give an unbiased portrayal of the case to the judge. CASA volunteers help kids through the system safely, quickly, and more effectively.
