At CASA of CGS, our advocates mean the world to us! They selflessly dedicate their time to be a voice for abused and/or neglected children without ever asking for or seeking recognition in any way. Each advocate has a reason as to why they decided to join the fight against child abuse and be on the front line. Their compassion is incredible. We want to recognize them for their efforts and give our CASA of CGS family an opportunity to meet some of the superheroes we are so fortunate to have as part of our team!
Meet Elizabeth Caldwell!
Elizabeth, a resident of Daretown, is one of our newest advocates!
We love her drive to become an advocate! She says, “I’ve always had a heart for helping others and I love kids. When I heard about CASA, I immediately was interested in getting involved. I want kids to know that they are important and they are loved!”
Elizabeth wants to bring hope to children by being supportive of them, helping them see their value, and showing them they can have a bright future.
In her spare time, she loves to spend time with her friends, read, write, and run. Some of her favorite times spent with family are going on family vacations and spending time together participating in family holiday traditions.
When asked if she could name a person who has influenced her life, she replied, “My family has been very influential in my life. They have always been very supportive and encouraging. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without them.”
Thank you for sharing your story, Elizabeth! CASA of CGS is proud to have you as part of our family! The motivation behind your drive to become an advocate is wonderful and inspirational to others. Because of people like you, children have a voice! Thank you for all that you do, not only for CASA of CGS, but for the children we service as well.
