The Morris brothers spent three years in foster care and had begun making plans to age out of foster care. But their Dallas CASA volunteer advocate Chris wouldn’t give up on the dream of a permanent family for the Morris boys.
Dallas CASA volunteer Mark Barbaree recently went the extra mile – or miles – for a teenager he’s advocating for. The child was on runaway status from a foster home, and Mark traveled to East Texas and spent hours looking for the teenager. For Mark, this was all in a day’s work.
For Cristina and Michael Swartz, sharing a Dallas CASA case was the plan from the start. Married three years and each with busy full-time jobs, the pair thought sharing a case would help with scheduling. They didn’t realize how valuable the emotional support would be.
