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.
