"I guess I was lucky when I complained about a CASA worker on our case. The prior CASA told me to demand he got back on the case. I didn`t think it would work but it did. Just so everyone knows, this worker has been doing this for 8 years and he himself has said he has seen so much corruption in the past 2 years that after our case is done, he`s done. He is only doing this to help us. The emotional part of it has affected his health. He is a wonderful person and will always be a part of our family. As for the complaint about the other CASA worker, she is still the worker on the case of a different child that was in our care and she is a LIAR. At first, she pretended to be on our side but that changed when we were in court. She is without a doubt,a puppet of the state. She also looks like she is high all the time."
Dear Reader..please call me with the contact information so I can talk to this person at some point. Thanks.

Senator, my prayers are with you. This system will try to tear you apart while never looking at their own tendencies towards the destruction of the family. Warm, friendly, sentimental sounding goals in writing may sway many, but the reality on the front lines leaves a wake of broken people with little recourse.
CASA was born from a need, but has since morphed into part of the problem. I have seen CASAs with severe mental health problems, little to no contact with the family, forceful behaviors with family, overly supportive with boundary violations in others, and on and on. This is not a regulated industry in any sense of the word and should not have the power in the court room that it has.

"NOTHING was done about our complaints with our CASA. In fact the head of the CASA dept. called me at nine p.m. on a Sunday night DEMANDING that I retract my complaints! Even after admitting her knowledge of this CASA's shady past in California. She needs to go as well."
