"When I was looking for volunteer opportunities, I wanted to find something where I knew, without a doubt, that I was making a difference. The thing that is so compelling is that judges really do listen to what we have to say, and that makes a difference in the life of a child."

~ Lou S., Dallas CASA volunteer since 1997
